Bad news, Good news

First the bad news: Pulitzer Prize winner Seymour Hersh has revealed that ex-vice prez Dick Cheney--aka Voldemort--had a team of international assassins that reported directly to him.

The good news is that the redemptive, joyful, goofy spirt of musicals is alive and well in an Antwerp train station.

As far as I'm concerned, this is how we're going to conquer global terrorism.

You're right, this is exactly how we're going to conquer global terrorism. Song and Dance.

Unfortunately, you'll need to come up with some better suggestions.

Great way to start my Monday. Brought a smile to my face and a tear to my eye. Gotta love impromptu musicals in train stations!

Was this an impromptu happening, with some prepatation by a core of song and dance people, but with the public taking part in the act?

If this is the case, the people of Antwerp are amazing!

I should like to see what happened if the same surprise event was organised in Madrid´s Atocha staton, or Barajas Airport.

Ok, in my mind's eye it was impromptu. I'm sure in "real" life it was tons of practice and rehersal and made to look easy just like traditional musicals. But I like to think it just sort of happened. It seems more fun that way!
