Continued on page 2

In the olden days, the Guardian was jocularly known as the Grauniad because it was notoriously poorly proof-read and was consequently full of typos.

Although I don't actually take a daily newspaper, this morning I was feeding Lorna and Richard's cat, they having gone away for the night, and I read a front page column about the pope's visit to the UK. At the foot of the column it said "Continued on page 2" so I turned to page 2, but nowhere was the continuation of the article. I eventually found it on page 5.

So gratifying to discover that they've not abandoned such a long-standing tradition.
