A sign of the times
I saw a CD-ROM on sale in a gift shop at London City airport today. It was titled:
Create and print your own Divorce PapersMaybe I'm being old-fashioned and you might consider this matter-of-fact treatment of divorce as a welcome example of 'empowerment'.
I still find it extraordinary that such a thing could be a casual last-minute purchase at an airport, on a par with a modem adaptor, a giant-size Toblerone or a souvenir tin of shortbread.
