Are there still any doubting prophets of doom out there?

This nation is experiencing the greatest national feelgood factor I've ever experienced. The general uplift is quite noticeable everywhere around here, especially with a local gold athlete doing so well.

Yes I think Bolt was one of the first to fall foul of the new rule and he was mighty peeved about it.
