REM postponed

Yesterday was pretty horrible; I think we can all agree on that. But I think we Brits should also be pretty proud of how well we've dealt with it: the emergency services did an outstanding job and the British public displayed typical stoicism and grit. I think our collective response was best summed up by the closing lines of the BBC News last night, which, rather than describing the events as a tragedy or a disaster, simply said it was 'a day of difficulties'.

I was going to go the REM gig at Hyde Park tomorrow, but they've wisely postponed it for a week. All tickets for tomorrow are now valid for Saturday the 16th, or I think you may be able to get a refund if you can't make that date.
