Boring Saturday night made more exciting with a bomb

I was sort of planning on going out for a couple of beers this evening. It is about a 40 minute walk into town and frankly I couldn't be bothered. Part of the problem was that I had to listen to a production of Accidental Death of an Anarchist on the radio part of the BBC I player, before it was lost in the early hours of Sunday morning.

I remember watching the play in the mid 80s (I think) when it was on channel 4. The play blew me away then. It made more of an impression after 20 years of free market brain washing. People were more optimistic then I think that the left would prevail.

Or perhaps I am being naive. I would feel bad if the Boston bombers had been influenced by the play.
