"Don Quixote had his windmills /Ponce de Leon took his cruise
Took Sinbad seven voyages /To see that it was all a ruse
(That's why I'm) Looking for the next best thing"

Like, Whatever, You Know
Apparently, as a Britsh blogger, and an ex-pat at that, I'm supposed to summon up some outrage at the recent UN report that among the wealthy nations the UK is failing its children. But, well, the Guardian says:
The UK takes bottom place "by a considerable distance" for the number of young people who smoke, abuse drink and drugs, engage in risky sex and become pregnant at too early an age.
So who am I to harsh their buzz, know what I'm sayin'?
