"Even as a child, I felt like an alien" interesting interview with Patti Smith in the Observer.
Not sure if it's been widely reported but today sees the first industrial action by BBC staff to try and counter the juggernaut of redundancy that's heading for them. This will be followed by a further two days next week. Good on 'em for standing up for themselves and not taking it in the neck or anyplace else.

Last week, I tried to rally "the troops" at my place of work to stand up to the most recent slings and arrows and was pretty much ignored. Hence the success of the "divide and conquer" philosophy that is pole-axing us at every turn. There is indeed, no end to the humiliation.
