Sunday: President Lech Kaczyński and Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili are visiting a South Ossetian checkpoint 40 km from the Georgian capital, Tbilisi. Shots are fired.

Monday: an analyst from an Italian bank announces that a share in one of Poland's leading oil companies is worthless.

Tuesday: the exhumation of the remains of Gen. Władysław Sikorski, World War II commander-in-chief and Polish prime-minister-in-exile who, according to the official version of events, was killed in a plane crash off Gibraltar in 1943; some historians suspect he was assassinated.

Tuesday: President Kaczyński vetoes a law passed by the parliament on changing the status of agricultural land to residential in towns.

Wednesday: Brussels announces its anti-crisis plan; some say Poland may benefit.

Wednesday: President Kaczyński vetoes three of six laws reforming the healthcare system.

Thursday: terrorist attacks in Mumbai.

Just a few events from just a few days. We live in times when no radio or TV presenter can complain of a shortage of news.

We follow the media with trepidation at best and with little hope that we will find any good news. How easy it is not to notice that we live in peaceful times-to the extent possible given our society and its experiences. The present threats we face are undoubtedly smaller than those of the past, which have faded and are now history.
