No a la guerra - the power of the people
I was in Spain when the war broke out this year. It was a country that was supposedly "right behind" the antics of George W. The Demonstrations were large and extremly creative. The Power of the freedom of speech in all the countries I visited was amazing. Perhaps I notice it more living in a country where noone speaks out... no one uses graffitti, no one would dare deface ....anything.
Unfortunately whilst I was refreshed by people's committment to the cause in the UK, Spain, Berlin, Prague, France, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Oslo and even in the States... the relative lack of the power of the people, has never been more apparent... and the lack of actual democracy never more frightening.

La Sagrada Fammille - Barcelona
The gorgeous colours and shapes of the stained glass windows of the never yet completed Gaudy Cathedral "La Sagrada Fammille" in Barcelona.
found: I was reading the following passage over at v chen
Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a total mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm.
Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.
Strangely enough...it seems true.
I had no problem reading the text with regular speed and understanding.
There go all those spelling lessons.
