The PM programme on R4 had a piece about San Francisco city council attempting to curtail nudity in public, restricting exposed genitals to public parks, beaches and officially sanctioned parades. Eddie Mair had the rare honour of interviewing one of the Commissioners in charge of this project, one Scott Wiener. Our Eddie did a much better job of covering his amusement than a certain James Naughtie did so famously when he interviewed Jeremy Hunt a few months ago.

Just saw Susannah Clapp .  Her name is rather appropriate for a theatre critic (although she'd be equally well suited to work at an STD clinic).

Quote
Father Stephen Wang, dean of studies at Allen Hall Seminary, says it is a sacrifice that many priests manage. "It's possible when people have an inner maturity and the faith and support structures are in place." For him it is no different to the challenge of a husband trying to be faithful to his wife.

There is no celibacy get-out in the form of masturbation, says Wang. "For every Christian, masturbation, sex before marriage and sex outside marriage are wrong and something you shouldn't be doing.

"Masturbation is forbidden for every Catholic. The reason is that it makes us more selfish, more introverted and less able to open your heart in love to other people."

Of course, there are many millions of Christians who would disagree with Wang's position.

Spring Snow - thousands of animals feared dead.

"We are very, very, anxious," said Carolyn Lamb from NFU Scotland, who added that the full toll would not be known until the snow melted."

Not a job or a hobby, but I heard <a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/TR8AwBTbatc&rel=1" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/TR8AwBTbatc&rel=1</a> (on the radio as I was dozing off to sleep about 11pm - the right time for the song, the right song for the time) and it reminded me that in India I knew a couple who were called Jack and Jill. Those are genuine names, not ones adopted for a call centre!

An unfortunate man sustained a fractured collarbone after being pushed from his bike.
He can't work.
His name is Andy Limb.
