So much for superficial...

Read Johann Hari's article here. Maybe it is scaremongering, maybe it isn't - but should the G8 and George W Bush in particular be the people to decide this? We can but hope that Americans wake up to these twin threats and elect a president capable of taking the tough decisions that the rest of the world will be forced to follow if we're not going to end in a sticky, dried-out mess. Humanity may be flawed, but it's time to stop pandering to the lowest common denominator - we should be judged by our best, not our worst. Is it really too much to ask of us that we grow up and start acting in the interests of others instead of ourselves?
