“Are you a leader or a follower?”

Seriously what is your problem WordPress? I got everyone on my case about this, even sodding Tarot cards. Sheesh.

So ‘Best of Enemies’ is brilliant. If you get a chance to watch it on one of the NTL viewing services its worth doing so, powerful breakdown of that moment that TV realised how profitable it was to do mud slinging instead of journalism. I got to explain a lot of the context behind it afterwards to mum and my step dad, and where parts of it tied into my academic writing this year – especially William F Buckley Jr himself. It’s now the weekend at long last, and for the first time, I can kinda hit pause, and breathe, and in all likelihood get ill because I haven’t been pausing or breathing for sixteen months. Granted I kept saying I would, but with the exception of Seattle I didn’t, and there, well I was getting swept up in my love for America.

Quiet and calm on the cards now, even if certain other cards choose to disagree with me on that point.
