Someone I knew slightly from Otley was killed in Iraq on Tuesday, it seems - guy called Matthew Cornish from the year below me at school. Rick and Timmy B may faintly remember him too. I can't claim to have spoken to him for the better part of two decades but still, we used to be in the same youth club when we were about ten.

England fighting in Iraq was too much of an abstraction for me to care. I feel rather more involved when people start shooting Otley boys.
