Good things happen

London Black Cabs are astonishing. Apart from their amazing 25 foot turning circle, they now have adverts on and turn up in places as diverse as Paris and Edinburgh. But the thing that sets this one apart is the advertising message from a phone company - "Good Things Can Happen When Your Phone's Off" The British have always been in the vanguard of advertising, but I think that this campaign is genius.

This gives me an excuse to segue to recommended listening. If you only ever listen to one radio program in your life, listen to the 7th April Reith Lecture - "in the Beginning There Was Sound" by Daniel Barenboim, and you will hear in music why the Oslo Accord was always doomed to failure. If you want to have a laugh, you can always listen to The Now Show, as well.
