We are being guided slowly but very firmly, like a flock of sheep ignorant of their fate, into a 'super state'. Fuji's Taiwa Cho factory, 20 miles from Sendai city, has been damaged, although fortunately none of the workers there are reported injured.

It's been an absolute joy the past few years, and the fact that everyone hates Trail amuses me no end as despite it being the most popular mag, as a hate figure it's made me feel a little bit counter culture having been involved in it. I'd say there was optimism too and when you have a meeting in a place like this you can't help but feel the truth of it: are we contributing to the destruction of the environment we struggled happily to get to last night with our lifestyle and purchasing choices. Sour Patch candy in all it's many forms and flavours is an absolute must for those who prefer a sour tang to their sweet tooth satisfaction.
