Is it April Fool's Day?

One of my colleagues said yesterday that every day this week when he's gone to the BBC website to read the headlines the lead story has made him wonder if it is April 1st.  I agree.  All flights are cancelled in the UK because of volcanic ash from Iceland???

I also couldn't believe that last night was the first televised debate between the candidates for Prime Minister.  The first?  When I shared my amazement with a colleague, he made it sound like the reason they haven't done that in the past was because they've seen the U.S. elections become a beauty contest because ot if.  I think I'll ask around and get a second opinion on that one.

Perhaps in the Nixon/Kennedy debate.
