So what is timesnewroman? It's not the font, rather my take on the age we live in. The USA is the new Rome and the times we live in are timesnewroman.

Return of Torquemada

What an interesting day. Starts off badly when someone at the station kiosk hands me a bank card which had fallen from my wallet. What I never noticed immediately was that another card and my Visa had also fallen out along with it. It suddenly struck me when I am on the train that perhaps I should check said wallet and do so, only to discover Visa is missing and possibly another card which I might have had with me. Bollocks! So I get to work and make the necessary calls to cancel said cards. thewife phones later to say that she popped into the station to find out if anyone had handed a card in. Indeed they had, too late though as I had already cancelled them. Nevertheless a big thank you to the honest commuters of Irvine.

I'm not a Roman Catholic (I'm an Atheist) so I really shouldn't be at all bothered by the elevation of a former Hitler Youth member to the papacy. What bothers me though is that he's the kind who's unlikely to keep his fucking nose out of other peoples' business. Just for a change here's the Washington Post angle on him.

Just for fun why not type "liar" into a Google search and hit the I feel lucky button.
