"This Russian term of literary analysis refers to the experience of having the familiar and commonplace made strange or alien." - This feels like my life.
Alan Johnston abducted
Alan Johnston has been missing for 39 days now. BBC is inviting anyone who runs a blog or webpage to show their support. Hopefully those who have an influence on this situation will increase their efforts to secure his immediate release. Things like this really bug me when they happen to non-combatants be they Iraqi civilians or journalists.
