Sir Bob Jones

Below, the opening line from Britain’s Metro newspaper.

“At least two people have survived after a plane carrying more than 100 passengers and crew crashed, killing everyone on board.”

I’ve known dozens of our newspaper editors over the last half century, all good blokes. But it always puzzled me why they never read their own newspaper. Time and again over lunch I’d mention something in that day’s issue and they’d be unaware of it.

But now I know the explanation. Endlessly correcting items such as that above would make one either suicidal or murderish. So best to ignore the content and pray.
