Walking On Thin Ice

It's not every day that Yoko Ono pops up in the Guardian Diary column, but it is heartening to know that she's got the hang of this Twitter thing (http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2009/jun/23/diary-hugh-muir ).
Hugh Muir urges us all to "carry this thought from Yoko Ono on Twitter. 'You are water, I'm water. We're all water in different containers. That's why it's so easy to meet. Someday we'll evaporate together.' And you know the best of it? Couldn't hear her sing."
Ouch. Given her message, it's safe to assume that Yoko is one celebrity who doesn't have others to tweet on her behalf.
Her words will be a source of great strength to the protestors on the streets of Tehran as they use Twitter to tell the outside world of the latest developments there.
What's more, she's right; we are all water...problem is some of us are the Pacific Ocean while others are the Leeds-Liverpool canal.
