    Shake some web action
    I could ramble on a bit more about Bill Drummond's art terrorism (see yesterday's blog), having been on the road to Dounreay with him again this afternoon. But I'm more struck by the way we're so easily caught up in the minutae of parish life (subjects of Sunday morning's many varied brief conversations), as in the background, at international level, there's so many rumblings going while the American and British governments prepare for something they'd like to call 'war' against a people who've done no wrong to them. They're just colateral in Bush's oilfields strategy.

    The mainstream media are shuffling into 'war' position; no point believing much they tell us about Bush/Iraq from now on. Despite this, church and trades union leaders are finding voice, getting confident, the 'alternative' media is lively, and the web is a good place to begin simple, effective protest. Time to send emails to MPs and ministers to register dissent.

    (If you're unsure you're ready to do that just yet, please have a read of John Pilger's article which I've lifted from this week's New Statesman)
