Blimey, it's getting hot in here. September appears to be the season of seething rage with people getting themselves into a lather for various reasons.
Thousands of Muslims are enraged over a film that the media daren't mention the title of for fear of upsetting them even more. Although with diplomats being murdered and embassies being stormed and set on fire I don't think that is possible.
A French gossip rag has published pictures of Kate Middleton topless on holiday and the British media are all madder than a a box of arseholes and invoking the ghost of Diana.
The families of the 96 football fans who died in the Hillsborough disaster 23 years ago are up in arms with my boss after an inquiry revealed that the police may have altered statements.
And here I am being all flippant and glib and wishing that people wouldn't take themselves so seriously. We are on a tiny planet in a universe so vast we can't imagine it, the law of averages states there must be other live out there. There are too many stars and planets for us to be the only life in the universe. Yet we think we are so important and serious.
It's easy for me to sit here in my nice house with my nice life and tell people to calm down but if we keep going down this route we aren't going to make it.
Have a nice weekend.
