Simon Schama’s essay in the Guardian. “… the best, the only revenge, when you’re fighting a cult that fetishises death, is life.”
Read this and see if it annoys you as much as it annoyed me: Seumas Milne write in the Guardian They can’t see why they are hated. It’s good to read stuff like this, but that shouldn’t keep you from detesting it. I wonder if Mr. Milne thinks that the English simply don’t get why they are so disliked in Northern Ireland?

Walter Mossberg from The Wall Street Journal writes about GoToMyPC.com, a useful-sounding remote control service for running your home PC from any terminal in the world. Yet another cool service that is both valuable and extremely dangerous from the point of view of security. Incidentally, I keep up with Mossberg’s columns with Spyonit.com. It’s a great service.
