I switched on BBC News 24 to see if there was any more on the terrible news that Bob Woolmer was murdered. For once, all the seemingly paranoid rumours turned out to be true.

Instead of Woolmer I got a lot of adorable pictures of Knut the baby polar bear. It would be one of those 'and finally...' stories except that keeping him at all seems to be highly controversial.

Three posts already this morning! This is displacement activity.
