I’m back in Seattle again, and enjoying the New York Times, as always. Let’s see, what’s in the international news? Thousands in pro-democracy rallies in Hong Kong, atom bomb developments in Korea, and new laws in Norway requiring 40% female board membership in public companies.

What about the UK? Well, apparently, some people in Elstree are upset about the height of their neighbour’s hedge…
