    When I lived in England, The Guardian was known as The Grauniad. On account of all the typos. A word to the wise.

      I’m pretty sure the industry, as a rule, decided they no longer needed copy editors because the computers have spell-check. Or some reason. But nobody knows how to use that little feature, apparently! >:-D

    Um — OK, well, tell the truth — I was there before computers. They used — linotype!!

      Cool! I was introduced to computers using a dedicated word processor, a behemoth, called a Lexitron!

      Hee hee! I know linotype!

      You’ve had an interesting, fun-filled life and I will look forward to continuing to read about it!

    Still called the Grauniad. We also have the Torygraph, the Indie and the Sindie.
    I love that you have become a Grauniad reader. Can you get the cryptic Crossword online too?
    You might like the New Statesman, and a bit of Private Eye for political lampooning.

      Oh funny! As an editor, I just can’t believe even basic proofreading is deemed unimportant!

      Oooo, cryptic crosswords are my favorite! I’ll look.

      Thank you for further references. Hard to know what’s going on in the world without enough varied sources.
