Acute Shortage of Blog

'Acute' does not mean 'Severe': it means, rather, temporary. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible, but I felt unable to write anything or even to paste in one of my limericks today because I am horrified by the legal decision that a policeman who shot a young boy in America did nothing wrong.
'Matilda told such dreadful lies / it made one gasp and stretch one's eyes' but it seems Obama can tell worse lies and no-one bats an eyelid: following the high court decision he said that American Society was based on the rule of law. The very slightest glance at the history of America since the disaster of Columbus's 'discovery' of the place shows that on the contrary it is based on a virulent racist violence that persists until today.
But let's not dwell on these wickednesses: here's a pretty picture to keep you going until I can write here again:

This is in fact the city of Volos as seen from the mountain village of Makrynitsa.
