And now a new chapter in the life of the plant might have begun with the news that scientists have deciphered the full genetic code of the potato. Advances in crop technology have enabled mankind to avoid the Malthusian nightmare of too many hungry mouths and not enough food in the past. Here's hoping that the potato is about to help us do so yet again.

Here's a "blink" summary of the Anglo-American relationship from a Derbyshire miner. "Blair started out all right but then he met that Doobya. And he walked with his arms out like he was carrying two big barrels. After that, Blair walked with two big barrels under his arms. That's what happened. You can tell about a man by the way he walks. Same as I say."
