I shudder to think how the blogosphere is going to respond to the news of North Korea's nuclear test.
The possibility exists that a constructive debate will emerge from this, as bloggers re-evaluate their previous positions on nuclear proliferation, and come to a consensus around a rational plan to engage with the Chinese on -
Wait, who am I trying to kid? We all know that this is going to send bloggers into apocalyptic convulsions, and that the furious cries for the immediate destruction of Pyongyang in a pillar of nuclear fire will be the only game in town.
Still, at least there's one bit of good news this morning - a coalition of experts has issued a call to improve cocaine services in Scotland.
About time too, as the quality of Scottish nose candy is distressingly poor.
With a little luck, they'll get this program up and running before our impending nuclear annihilation. On a morning like this, at least it's something to look forward to.
Update! Glorious news, Comrades! The wise and sane Instapundit has found a post by some guy who claims that the North Korean nuke was a dud.
Stranger things have happened, of course, but this has the whiff of fantasyland about it.
I, for one, welcome our North Korean masters, and will continue to do so until final confirmation is handed down by La Passionara Malkin.
Update 2! Aww, he was just a teasin' us.
