Can…

I’M happy to live in a world where people look at a giraffe and its fantastically long neck and wonder: can a giraffe vomit?  We should worry about these things and I hope the poor things never need to, given the length of the journey.But as popular Google search suggestions show, we are also sharing the planet with people who wonder to themselves whether journalists are allowed tattoos, dogs can eat grapes and… whether black people can swim. Sadly, for teachers involved in recent disputes with the government over when they can call it a day after a lifetime in the classroom, people wonder too whether teachers can retire at 55. Good luck to them.
