Why the lean and mean Novak Djokovic of 2011 has tennis running scared

There was a brief passage of time when Novak Djokovic lived up to his nickname. The Djoker. Not because he was doing the life-and-soul-of-the-party thing, the impressions, the running commentary, the often profligate banter. No. Of course, it was very funny for a while. A breath of fresh air. But it was after the initial [...]

Is there a link between indie music and Gnosticism?, Eagle Eye

Is there a link between indie music and Gnosticism?

A rash of Questions to Which the Answer is No. Number 534, above, was asked of Bob Hardy at The Guardian.
Then we have number 535:
Mike Huckabee, a man to watch?
Number 536:
Will Tories’ honesty and new-found oomph be enough?
And number 537:
Could Artifical Intelligence Replace The Human Radio Personality?

War is peace, Notebook

Whither the Blair Generation?, Eagle Eye

Whither the Blair Generation?

I received an email the other day from Darren Canning, which I reproduce with his permission. I think it speaks for itself:
I joined the Labour Party in 2005 to help fight an election where I feared Tony Blair’s New Labour could be defeated on the basis of the Iraq war. I had been a supporter [...]
