Why this Blog?

A place where I can lament the changing times; for eccentric comments on current affairs and for unfashionable views, expressed I hope, in cogent style; also occasional cris de coeur largely concerned, I regret to say, with myself.


I welcome your comments, so do please write. Please note however that all comments are moderated prior to publication. Whilst I fully appreciate that life can be frustrating, nevertheless, abuse, SMS language and illiteracy will not be tolerated!

At least his business should grow

As the old English saying goes "It's an ill wind that blows nobody any good."  Even in the worst recession for 80 years some people can make money it seems.

The Daily Telegraph has a story about one Takayoshi Urakami, whose speciality is helping people to disappear.  I do not mean this in the sense that it might be understood by the Camorra or Al Qaeda.  No, these people are "up against it" and simply have to vanish.

According to the article, Urakami accepts that disappearance is not really a satisfactory solution, but then if one does not want to commit  hari-kiri  then what else is there?

Until the next time
