Germany had testing going on very early. I think they had the first reliable test back in January. And they knew how to protect the care homes, contrary to most other countries.

Yes, managing the care homes well gives a lot of bang for your buck.

Shub-Niggurath, Please
He's got those eyes that slope slightly downwards/outwards, that can make a person look a bit sad even when they're not.

But he's also the sort of person who really enjoys being angry.
I dunno, from what I've heard about Paul Dacre (for one) it's not an act or an enjoyment, he's just a hugely angry and vindictive person. I was reading about him being prepped to give evidence for some sort of trial (maybe Leveson inquiry or something similar) and Private Eye reported his staff members saying something so hard to make him come across any differently cos if you strip away the rage and hatred, what you find beneath it is more of the same - I think their literal words were something like "It's just icy cold rage all the way down to his core". It's completely different from Johnson who doesn't really care deeply about anything, if his boss said "I need 10,000 on why all Muslims are paedophiles and we want it to come out at [x] time and really sway public opinion and ruin a lot of lives" then Johnson would just say sure, not cos he believed it was true or wanted particularly to hurt people, it's more that he doesn't give a fuck if what he says is true or not or if his actions result in people getting hurt - he would have just as happily written the opposite essay, in fact it's well documented that there were times when he did both. Whereas if Dacre was in that situation then he would write the first one cos he his filled with hatred of Muslims, but he wouldn't write the second cos he's a man of (admittedly evil) principles.
I did think it was funny that staff at the Mail used to refer to his daily briefings as The Vagina Monologues cos he always called so many people a cunt during each one.

I don't know enough about Hitchens to know if he's a professional grump or not though is the main point. And I don't care either.

where are people with paranoia and conspiracy formation these days? any dark suspicions that won't go away? be honest. i don't mean you're sucummbing to them, just that sometimes they occur to you, that this might all be a trap, and you get a shiver up your spine, before dismissing it
