It is a grey day and too easy to remain inside where I have wasted an inordinate amount of time trying to rid my blog of Google+ comments. All I've managed to do is delete my replies to my precious commenters. I love you, few as you are. Please do not go away. I am working on it.
Gwil, I replied to your thoughtful comment on my Iranian post and if I can manage to recompose it, I will put it up again.
