Earlier this week, Channel 4 News reported that "the poisioning of an ex-KGB agent in a sushi restaurant was a story straight out of the Cold War".

Now call me old-fashioned, but can you ever see George Smiley setting foot in a sushi restaurant? The Lady Anne, perhaps, but only because it would be risqué.

Today's Independent contains a large poster on the Moon. There's a section explaining the current best theory on the formation of the Moon - collision of another Mars-sized object with the Earth shortly after planetary formation 4.5 billion years ago. But in the pictures, the continents and oceans look just the way they do today. Has the National Trust been around that long?
