The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
It's frightening when the alleged mainstream media can't get a headline right. This afternoon Google's news headlines included something along the lines of "Investigation continues of Afghanistan Korean burning". After doing a double take I realized there was an errant 'e' in the piece. Gadzooks! This is awful.
If it were Korean burning, it would be worse than the Koran, much as I hate book burning.Okay typos happen. Some are just funny as in the case of Neil Young!
