Two North American Notes.

I just read about a man in New Brunswick, Canada who got struck by lightning while making a speech at his daughter’s wedding. Am I sympathetic? Does the phrase ‘poetic justice’ spring to mind? Would I consider playing God if only I could?

Fortunately he only suffered a slightly injured thumb, so that’s OK. Weddings are pretty awful things in my view – not least for the torturous quality of the speeches – but probably not worth dying for.

And I gather the good folks of Nevada are becoming concerned about a growing shortage of marijuana. Aren’t we all?
