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.
The Evening News editorial mentioned that because the ball is now in the hands of City of Edinburgh council and TIE that Steve Cardownie and SNP councillors might still be a threat. Scotsman Inc really hate the Nats don't they?

Also the disruption this will cause might put pressure on an already fragile urban landscape. Cyclists and residents are not happy about the effect on cycle paths particularly the Roseburn/Blackhall corridor. All this on top of Granton Waterfront industrial traffic using minor roads like Crewe Road North for access rather than the new Telford College bypass, apparently under pressure from private property developers who fear devaluation of their newbuild properties.
