Daily Express prints pathetically weak headline "There was no news and I was bored" says sub.

How this fits in with the paper's newfound piety, I don't quite get.

I was amused by todays front page shock and horror that changing weather patterns might be bring tornadoes and hurricanes to the UK, and it's page 5 shock and horror that councils might try and force people to recycle.

There's some joined up thinking completely passing them by...

'Stop!', yelled Canute to the changing climate, 'can't you see this wonderful compulsory recycling scheme that my officials have put in place?'

And besides, we all know that climate change is a myth. Any changes to weather patterns are just side-effects of the CIA's HAARP mind-control program, or signs of an impending Pole Shift caused by the magnetic vortices of Nazi flying saucers.

On the other hand, I thought the Express headline was quite funny in a pointless sort of way. Which is a distinct improvement on their more common "offensively stupid" approach.

Magnetic vortices? Man, everyone knows the Nazi flying saucers run on clean, safe Orgone energy.

On the whole pregnancy headline this is really old news, my Kiwi partner mentioned it to me a good month ago. Really slow news day eh?

I do feel very sorry for Knut. He appears to have been a reasonable king by the standards of his time, despite being a viking, and yet what do people remember him for? He played a joke on sycophantic courtiers, and people forgot that it was a joke...
