Taking a leaf from Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands's book, Pope Benedict XVI announced this week that he was jacking it in and retiring to spend more time with his best buddy, playing golf, raising hell and chasing tail. It was in Latin, so that's a rough translation.
The work of our coalition has resonated keenly with many professional journalists too. Kira Cochrane in The Guardian suggested that "it's sobering to think that the most prominent image of a woman in our papers each day is of a teenager or twentysomething in her pants".

The ombudsman further investigated 4,399 of the 16,337 complaints made to them about the NHS. 10,565 of the complainants were still in the process of making their complaint to the NHS and were advised by the ombudsman to either write an official letter (if they hadn't already) or wait for the response from the NHS.
After ten years of non-smoking policy in New York the bars have more visitors now, because the vast majority turned out to prefer a healthier environment.
Jimmy Savile was a "predatory, serial sex offender" but he did not "groom the nation". He was allowed to continue abusing because he was a 'celebrity'. Pretending that he "groomed the nation" allows those who knew to minimise and deflect their guilt.

In pursuing their own sporting goals, they gave the rest of us the opportunity to share something of the excitement and drama.
A man pretending to ride a horse while making fun of Seoul's beautiful people gets viewed over one billion times.
It's no accident that it was Newsnight that played host to the BBC's current and perhaps most fateful car-crash yet. The performance of this now little watched late-night take on the affairs of the day has become a key indicator of the corporation's commitment to its supposed purpose.
The sensational stories of killings involving high numbers of people have invariably occurred in locations, such as schools, where firearms are strictly prohibited. Efforts are currently underway in some States to require a certain number of school faculty be armed and trained in crisis management, providing at least some security against mass shootings. I applaud these efforts.
