Oh, god, we're screwed

As if the world wasn't in enough trouble, we've now got to rely on Ringo Starr asking for world peace for his birthday:

"Wherever you are," Starr said Tuesday in a statement, "office, home, bus, tube, sitting, standing, walking, alone or with others, doesn't matter -- at Noon on July 7, make the peace sign and think, say, shout, sing 'Peace and Love'."

and then all say "Doctor" and that'll defeat the Master, too.

Much as we love a spot of idealist optimism, there's something slightly creepy about a bloke who thinks the miseries upon miseries of the world will be put on one side as a birthday gift for a bloke who used to drum in a pop group.
