Phil CollinsBBC: 'Sonic weapon' deployed in London during Olympics
The Ministry of Defence has confirmed a device which can be used as a "sonic weapon" will be deployed in London during the Olympics.

Ch-ch-changes were involved

Thanks to the Gruts reader (you know who you are), who reminded me that I had forgotten to draw your attention to this:

Dearth of deaths

I've just realised that it has been almost two months since I added anyone to my list of toasts for 2007. Have I had my head buried in the sand, or has nobody worth toasting died recently?

I just checked out the deaths for June 2007 on Wikipedia, and the only one I'd heard of was Bernard Manning—which rather proves my point.

I'm not actually wishing anyone any ill-will, you understand, but it seems to me that a major celebrity death is long overdue.

Remember, you heard it here first.
