I spent the better part of the past week in London.  The news was dominated by 3 items:

Ellen MacArthur's solo around the world sailing record celebration.

Charles and Camilla's wedding announcement.  We had dinner near Windsor Castle the night of the royal party for the engagement.  Plenty of photographers at the castle gates.

The government formally apologizing for unjustly jailing suspected IRA bombers.  The film “In the Name of the Father” was based on this story.
