    Being the headline...

    I believe one of our members (hides in shame) might be a newspaper man in the land down under.

    Who can right a non-fiction story about AZ and Thailand in less than 200 words.?

    Just joshing ya mate. What if a TD member put forth an article about Thailand (200-300 words) and allowed you (MM) to edit the final piece.

    Is this worth a shot? Might be fun!

    ermm hillbilly - thats a great idea but you obviously havent been reading too many of me posts as your would have noticed that editing/spelling/grammer ain't excately my strong point.

    I own a newspaper but thank goodness i don't have to 'right' or edit too many stories.
    News is what someone, somewhere is trying to suppress - everything else is just advertising.

    Would it make any difference anyway as your customers are australians?

    It does actually as our town has a high percentage of Germans living here who as we all know are very intelligent and prone to complain if the local paper has any errors.

    Yes, I'd say that the Yermans would complain about all the articles about King Billy CokeBottle and all of his rellies!
