Since your newspaper made the reckless decision to become a tabloid, I have noticed with horror the very poor standard of grammar by your columnists. There seems to be littl or no editorial supervision.
The headline reads " Is the greatest Russian Stalin or Nicholas ?"
It should, of course, read " Is the greater Russian, Stalin or [ is it]Nicholas?"
I should have thought that the average nine-year old would know better! This just one example of many. On a daily basis , I notice on average 100 "Illiteracies" in your newspaper. The Times used to be a flagship, particularly noted for both good usage and style. I now use your newspaper in key skills & basic skills classes to point out the infelicities of poor and often confusing grammar; whereas a few years ago I used it to illustrate good usage.

Blog for 4th July
Where has the year gone?
trouble in the
more to the point; where is summer?
finally topped-up my internet account yesterday, after being locked out owing to
password problems......now that I have data/ air-time , the network is
down...DOH!EDIT......The Network IS NOT DOWN..THE STUPID CUNTS HAVE GIVEN ME MOBILE PHONE MINUTES.....PLUS THEY WON@T COVERT THEM>>>STUPID CUNTS WANT ME TO PAY TWICE>>I SHALL TAKE THE BASTARDS TO COURT AND BAD MOUTH THEM OVER THE NET>>>>>THEIR MARKETING NOUS SEEMS TO BE NON_EXISTANT...I've written to the MD suggesting they dont site their call-centre in the sub-continent...and give them authority to rfund....HOW DO THESE STUPID BASTARDS STAY IN FUCKING BUSINESS?
am i a real-life Arthur Dent_________pay your bill and get cut off!!!!!
It is 4:45
a.m. , I shall go for a walk assuming that most of the drunks are either in bed or in
why does the network always crash, when I can't sleep?
consider a number N, such that N=N for all values of
N.....No, consider STAR TREK....or cowboys in space....Saturday
morning kid's show at the local bug-hutch........If it is "Cowboys & Indians" , ,
Who should have played the parts in the hay-days of kinema?>
Take the classic
Bones.....got to be Noah Beery
little trickier, but John wayne gets my vote
Spock... is a bit of a bugger, i thought of Robert Mitchum...but that's just plain wrong!......Jimmy Stewart could be Scotty...but who is Spock?........I shall ponder this whilst i take my very early morning constitutional along the prom..BRRRRRRRR....cold, but clear...i shall have earned my bacon & eggs this morning!
Moving on to STNG...Picard is so obviously NOT John Wayne...Henry Fonda , perhaps?
Riker is ??????.......Data must be Clint Eastwood!!!!!!!!!!!....Geordie is Olly Hardy (Yes he was in westerns!)...got it! Riker is Alan ladd on stilts!..troy is so annoying I am tempted to fill her role with Angela Lansbury (yes , she was in westerns too!)....funny how so many screen-actors got their breaks in westerns....I shan't mention DS9 or Enterprise; i am getting weary of this...but please fire back your classic western-actors for Star Trek; I shall be most intreagued.
Thursday is "Film Night" chez-moiBUT I decided Not to watch a film; rather I viewed a surprizingly interesting documentary on the history of the Sunday-School...these rare treats do crop up from time-to-time! I had my usual bottle of red, a rather over-flavoured sicilian number, accompanied by a Bolivar Royal Corona; i should like to say it was an excellent smoke, but alas it was rather ordinary and never really developed, it stayed well and had a good construction, the draw being a little on the easy-side of ideal, earthy but shallow taste, even burn with no touch-ups required 1hr20m, I shall put the rest of the box in the bottom of the large humi on cedar for a year or two, although I don't think that they will improve as the box is 2003. next week i think I'll spark up a saint-luis-rey corona...there are about half-a-dozen lurking in the humi.
Ancient Languagesi ran into an old friend the other day, for want of something better to do he's just taken a first-degree in physics; in his final year he learnt FORTRAN !...Okay, it's still good at number-crunching and has excellent I/O parameters; BUT , get this, the course DID NOT cover N-dimensional arrays !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
right 6:15 time for bacon and eggs, more later........
