I only subscribe to one magazine these days. This week’s issue is a good one and a reminder that New Statesman is definitely the high-watermark for magazines, and they’ve worked out how to straddle the web very well too.

The difference between a brave man and a coward is a coward thinks twice before jumping in the cage with a lion. The brave man doesn’t know what a lion is. He just thinks he does.
Charles Bukowski, “Notes of a Dirty Old Man”
You’ve all suffered from their cruelty - the ear loppings, the beatings, the blindings with hot irons, the burning of our farms and homes, the mistreatment of our women. It’s time to put an end to this! [Cheers] Now, this forest is wide. It can shelter and clothe and feed a band of good, determined men - good swordsmen, good archers, good fighters. Men, if you’re willing to fight for our people, I want you! Are you with me?
Sir Robin of Locksley ‘The Adventures of Robin Hood’
