777 - Live Earth or Evil Earth?

For the superstitious next Saturday - 07.07.07, the seventh day of the seventh month of the seventh year of the century - should be the luckiest of days. There is a record number of weddings planned for that day.

However, it is also the second anniversary of the London bombings, which took place on 7 July, 2005. With the finding of car bombs in London and Glasgow last weekend, it is difficult not to worry that every zealot and bigot with a problem may want to make it a date to remember. Let's hope from Wembley to the Aussie Stadium in Sydney, from Randburg in SA to Copacabana Beach, from Kyoto to the Rothera Research Station in Antarctica, Saturday is remembered for Live Earth, not Evil Earth.
