Slow Pleasures

First slow food. Now slow lakes.
It's probably just as well that the members of the Windermere Speed Boat Racing Club don't play cards, go to the theatre or dance around maypoles.
Meanwhile, the RAF continue to fly fast jets 200 feet above our premiere national park with impunity.
Cumbria County Council elections are in May. I shall be standing on a platform of free surface-to-air missile ownership for all residents.

Now that's a platform I can support. As we say down South, an armed society is a polite society.

Lex, leaving aside what the Founding Fathers thought they were doing when they framed that amendment (presumably providing Chuck Heston with a bit of retirement income wasn't top of their priorities) I'm always surprised by the idea that Americans can only be polite when they're staring down the barrel of a gun. I've always found Southerners to be far more charming myself . .

Yes, but if anyone suggested such a thing in the South, he would be beaten senseless as "unpatriotic." Blind faith has become essential in the supposed leader of the free world, you see.

This is why I envy Britain and why I followed the link from Lex's blog. Very nice work here.
