I am so stressed by the American election (I keep thinking how much more stressed I'd be if my parents still lived there, as they did for the last one) that I am cheering myself up by listening to Hancock's Whole Evening. I was reared on Hancock's Half Hour - my sisters and I used to listen to episodes of the radio show on tape when we were going to bed, and I still find it utterly hilarious. If you've never heard Hancock before, check it out - and the sitcom itself is on BBC 7 every Tuesday (you can hear it anytime you like, thanks to the "listen again" feature). Currently Radio 2 is broadcasting the episode in which Hancock decides to go back to nature - in Clapham Common. Magnificent.

On a more serious note, check out this excellent account of how Spain did not give in to terrorism (scroll down if necessary).
