.............but for those who cling to the Doomsday scenario, it may not be be until February that CERN collides particles at almost the speed of light. If I've understood correctly, today was about ensuring that the trains would run round the track. Putting them on a collision course comes later.
I'm more wound up by the fact that the 12 noon news on the BBC News Channel interrupted its report on the CERN experiment to show live pictures of the Prince of Wales and Camilla emerging from a service at St Paul's Cathedral.
Further comment is pointless.
No amount of indignation or sarcasm could do justice to that grotesque distortion of 'news values'.
