Crime And Punishment

I started listening to the classic Fyodor Dostoevsky novel last night. I was sure glad I'd remembered to put it in the iPod. The BBC was nonstop royal baby last night. They are absolutely full of good feeling about this at the BBC.

They spent a lot of time going around the world asking their various correspondents what the reaction to the blessed event is in the different parts of the world. Most of them said the people there really don't, and the disappointment in the hosts' voices was palpable. They couldn't understand. There was a lot of "Hmmmm" and a few "Hmmm, that's a strange reaction."

They so want the world to know the same profound joy they feel, but it doesn't.

Dosteovsky again tonight.
