Given that in at least the last 10 of my books I have stated in the Preface that ‘Typo’ is my middle name, I can relate to a somewhat Freudian typo such as this. What was Alexander or was it Regina thinking as they typed that caption? The mind boggles.

I have noticed that the U.K. Daily Mail, my all time favorite newspaper, that I read every morning, while lying in bed, drinking a cup of coffee and listening to CNBC, has quite a few typos of late. I fully appreciate, doing this blog, how easy it is for that to happen when you are typing like crazy to get something posted. What cracks me up is that they don’t get around to correcting them. They must, given the millions who read them, get feedback. It is cute. It amuses me and makes me realize that others too suffer from my impediment. It does, however, suck.

Well I assume that it should not be too difficult to determine where I stand on this. But there are only so many issues that I can champion at any given time and my hands, quite literally, full right now helping the good ladies, led by Kia Sinclair, on the New Hampshire “Free the Female Nipple” movement. So I will let the ‘Daily Mail’ push this one. I am, however, smiling.

This is beyond diabolical. It is atrocious. It is totally uncalled for. This cannot be fobbed off as a mistake. This was very deliberate and calculated. It could, alas, have been an April Fool’s joke, but it isn’t. It is very real, and HUGE.

Yes, I understand. It is a very graphic way of calling Marie Antoinette by the ‘C’-word. But, even that, is unnecessary and puerile in that she was guillotined 221 years ago.

This makes me angry. I am VERY fond of Versailles Palace and Gardens. I am very familiar with them. I have visited Versailles dozens of times. 1968 – 1969 when I lived in France full-time and attended the “English School of Paris” (ESP) we lived in Louveciennes — which was on the outskirts of Versailles. Then during the 1978 to 1992 period when I would visit France at least 3 times a year I would invariably visit Versailles. Towards the last few years of that period we used to make a point of going to Versailles on weekend just for the pleasure and privilege of uniformed guards smartly sliding open the huge golden gates to let us in! Yep. It was a prerogative afforded to cars with diplomatic plates that had “CD 1” or “CD 2” on them. Essentially a car belonging to an Ambassador.

This is stupid. There was no need for this. As was the case 220 years ago heads should roll.
