Another good news day?

'Kinell. Seriously impressive if true, although obviously not guaranteed to ever be a practical treatment. Reported by Bill Gibson, I think. And from the Grauniad, Eternal vigilance is the price of metaphor.

The local paper here actually had the headline "Good news day" yesterday - among several other things, the tram project has been reprieved by a grand coalition of everyone-except-the-Nats. To be fair to them, while they weren't exactly happy about this, they didn't throw their toys out of the pram and have promised that they won't actually put any further obstacles in its way (although they won't help either). Also, of course, a bomb's been found before it went off, which is always the best time.
Good to hear about the public transport system. Even if overpriced. As long as it is quality then it'll be better value for money than that horrible parliament building. Lets hope they make the trams quiet and the peds observant. Melbournes trams were great before overcrowding spoilt the city. and i still love Oslo's integrated transport system... even if I can't follow the ticket machines (sorry Gautam).
