Two quick but very important points  
The gorgeous libby_drew  is running a competition for the best worst first lines from any fandom (freshly made up to be bad, no need to write the fic itself!). When I say competition, everybody wins! The prize is the joy you will bring to an increasingly depressed world. Hurry, entries close today.

The lovely and bright shiv5468  has an excellent post on why the NHS is not what many Americans are being told it is at the moment. Read the comments, too. I spent much of today wishing I had time to post on socialised health care systems, then came home to read hers and feel immense gratitude that it had pretty much all been said, and beautifully.

Hee, i too was vaguely planning a post about the health service - Shiv has saved us both from an hour of hard thinking and typing :D

She is a good soul. It's a relief as I think my brain is worn out tonight ...

Thank you! Yours are absolutely brilliant, of course.

Pin and Rai told me the first one was not bad enough. I boggled at them and then asked to be shown what they'd been reading ;-)

SO looking forward to reading the results of the whole; it's like the Literary Review's Bad Sex Prize and the BL rolled into one package of glee!
