The Salsa Spy

With regards to the news that Army interpreter Daniel James, who worked for Britain’s top general in Afghanistan, has been found guilty of spying for Iran, this line caught my eye:

James, 45, from Brighton, was described in court as a flamboyant fantasist who had invited his boss to salsa dance.

I must confess that I fail to see the link between salsa and spying.

Or maybe it’s just me?!

Change DID happen

What wonderful news to wake up to – so much nicer than 2004 and 2000!

President elect Barack Obama

President elect Barack Obama

And many congratulations to all Americans who will be waking up to a new dawn. The world thanks you!

“If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.

“We have never been a collection of individuals, a collection of red states and blue states. We are and will always be the United States of America. Because of what we did on this day, change has come to America.”

And I see the Democrats took Florida – that’s one in the eye for history!

And it looks like the Democrats could be taking the Senate!

A good news day – let’s hope it improves!

Hurrah! Woop de woo and all that 😀
