For the benefit of overseas readers (all two of you) the Guardian newspaper is notorious for making even more typo's than I do. They earnt the title Grauniad because of this reputation.
So today they appear to have missed something out. I buy the paper mentally prepared for reliving the agony that was last Saturday's football match. There is a whole sports section, most pages devoted to the World Cup. So I read about Sven going and his legacy.I read about Beckham resigning as captain before he could be pushed. I read pages about 'Where we went wrong' and I looked at lots of complicated diagrams showing the ball distribution of various named players, and pictures of Carvalho's balls being redistributed by Rooney.
What I did not see or read was a match report. Because there wasn't one. I don't believe they didn't write one so either they wanted to spare their readers some further distress or they forgot to add it in. Maybe they didn't think it was especially important and maybe they are right. Like when the Morning Star didn't think Diana dying was big news and found some other news to put on its front page the day after instead*. Of course the Daily Express has rather made up for the Morning Star's ommision by having Diana in its headline over forty times since January this year. Talk about flogging a dead princess.
On other pages,back in January I was bothered about some internet sites H's friends were using. There was a big article today about how police now reckon at any one time there are over 50,000 sexual predators on these sites talking to under age kids. I'm glad the risk these sites clearly present has been recognised.
But my big news is that I am off tomorrow to stay with Reidski till Saturday. Hooray! So long as he doesn't mention a certain football match we should have a pretty great time.
CORRECTION It has been brought to my attention by someone who knows that the Morning Star DID put Diana's death on the front page...it was 9/11 they didn't think was that inportant. An interesting editorial decision there by the editor of the Morning Star :-)
Consideration - Should a poem need explanation? Perhaps we really do "murder to dissect". After all, a poem isn't an extract from a washing machine manual. It isn't a fina...
