Jeet Heer, "Tory Stories"
A quick link here courtesy of Counterpuch leads to a discussion on literature and how it reveals more about the authors than they may realise.
In the UK, sellers of "magic" mushrooms will no longer be able to take advantage of a loophole in the law which did not specify that fresh forms of the fungi were illegal. From yesterday, the Drugs Act 2005 came into force stating that the sale of the hallucinogenic fungi, whether dried or fresh, is illegal. How long before plants are known as "weapons of mass corruption" I wonder.
There is some bad news on my front too. www.burnsite.co.uk has been brought down and cannot be accessed as a domain name. The content can still be found at http://www.users.freenetname.co.uk/~malburns/ but links back to it from dependent servers no longer function properly. I'll be using this blog provide access until some solution can be found.
