Blinked and missed it

The heatwave has ended. Emma Goldman once wrote
One is certain to be disappointed in American reporters, yet never in the London weather ...

If the damp makes one miserable, it produces good complexions, rich foliage, and the strength of the British Empire. Delicate skins, the luscious green lawns and meadows, are due to the weather, and the need to escape from his own climate has made the Englishman foremost among globe-trotters and colonizers.
That's the latest panic over. It's back to swine flu now. Can't wait to get to Greece.
