Carpe diem

Another one bites the dust. Another week that is, not a morbid reference to Prince Harry's fate now that he is off to Iraq. Although am I alone in wondering if he has confused Boujis with Basra? But this is hardly the time to make light of Iraq. Because with today's news of an impending US-UK sponsored 'Son of Star Wars', who can actually believe promises of a British endgame?

This week the future (of the world, not Britney again) feels horribly tenuous. Which is why we should live for the moment (or at least the weekend) and celebrate the 25th edition of City Slicker's 'Week's Action, Weekend Reaction'.

1) Incensed with rage over the determined military build-up and unjust war against Iraq when it is actually Al-Qaeda we are after? React by heading to the National Demonstration: No Trident/Bring the Troops Home. Because isn't silence acceptance? Assemble @ Speakers Corner, 12 Noon. Rally in Trafalgar Square 2:30PM. Saturday

2) Always fancied checking out the Barbican but needed a reason? React by indulging in its 25th birthday celebratory programme with an exhibit on Finland's master modernist architect Alvar Aalto or a show by Ireland's Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre. Worth the trip to Moorgate. Runs until 13 May and 3 March, respectively.

3) Secretly pining for a try at Wii with news of their market power? React by catching the last weekend of the Game On exhibit at the Science Museum. For a small fee you get to play 120 classic and modern games for as long as you like, including Space Invaders and Pacman. Who knows when you will get another chance? Until Sunday. £8.50.

Not everyone believes such shields can work. The system is a work in progress: it has been deployed even as parts are still being invented. America has gambled $90 billion so far that imperfect insurance is better than none in a risky world. Not for the first time, Mr Blair shares America’s view. A British missile site—built only after a battle royal at home—would bind Britain to that world-view for a generation. That may be exactly how Mr Blair wants it.

Who else is betting on Iran and North Korea before 2007 is out?

Ahhh I want to go to all 3.

I love Pacman. Wonder if they have Tetris as well?

Agree with you CS that the build up is unbelievable. What they have got themselves into is a very messy messy nightmare.

This whole missile testing makes me so angry. I wish Blair had guts!

Pleased to see Aalto get a retrospective. He is one of the greatest Finnish exports and is up tehre with Le Corbusier in terms of talent.

Will definitely check it out. The Barbican is hardly a hassle to get to.
