Misc - Simon Schama on the Noughties so far

Guardian Unlimited | The Guardian | Simon Schama delivers an interim report on the first decade of the millennium

A really nice bit of writing, if a bit on the depressing side. The environment's fucked, the Enlightenment is well and truly over, God's back and He's waxing wrathful, and the last paroxysms of the colonial wars are wiring the bad buys from Baghdad to the bad buys in Baltimore.

Ho hum. Stale mince pie anyone?
