Now that even John Ellis has unofficially excluded fairy fields, not much has changed. The professional theorists are busy sipping champagne, celebrating their luck in living in interesting times. Nobody appears to feel any need to admit that they were wrong. Even in a few months time, with the official exclusion, business will no doubt carry on as usual, and some young man will eventually be allowed to figure out why fairy fields do not exist.
Meanwhile, in a land far, far away, if one forgets that physics exists, one could argue that fate has been generous lately. My favourite cheap food is on special at the supermarket. I had to hitch some distance the other day, but had no trouble finding rides. On the last leg, the driver happened to be taking a rather obscure route, thereby saving me a long walk. Even the weather has been rather kind. I was forced to camp outside one night, but the wind died away and the temperature miraculously stayed above zero.
