The monthly newspaper column ran today. It was poorly edited, but I can't say I didn't ask for it: It was a piece of fluff and I referred to it that way and invited the editor to have at it. The result is that it is more muddled and unfocused than it was in the first place. Oh well, the good thing about newspaper shit is that it is forgotten almost as soon as it hits the page. If I can't be more careful, why should I expect others to do so?
I guess if you're going to do something badly, it's worth doing well.
