Accidental Heroes of the 20th Century: 13: Bill Hicks, American Comedian

Books: The double life of Martin Luther King


Historical Notes: People who refuse to believe in `never'

STUDY ANY paper any day and it will be full of cries of protest - in the news columns, letters to the editor or articles by columnists. Protest makes news - but do protest movements help to change the world? Are the wicked heresies of today destined to become, as the British political philosopher Harold Laski once observed, the sober commonplaces of tomorrow?

event: seed-gathering sunday

"If I knew I was going to die tomorrow, I would still plant a tree today," the late Martin Luther King once said, a thought to bear in mind tomorrow on Seed Gathering Sunday, part of the "Trees of Time and Place" event. In a celebration of the coming millennium which would doubtless be anathema to Peter Mandleson, people are being encouraged to collect seeds from their favourite tree - be it a mighty oak or a humble crab apple - and sow the little fellas at home. The intention is then to plant the emergent seedlings in the year 2000, either in your own back garden or in millennium copses. But here's a thought: what about a leylandii plantation around a certain dome in the Greenwich area?
