I’d rather read the CNJ…

IF you are leafing through this week’s Spectator, take a look at the diary page by the renowned playwright Sir David Hare.

He writes: “Signs of growing old. First, a preference for local newspapers. I’d far rather read the Camden New Journal than the Economist (a magazine which, mind you, must be as tedious to write as it is to read. Is the solution to every country’s problems really to resemble the US more closely? Can’t anyone at the Economist come up with a new article?). Second, choosing to ride on buses, especially upstairs. Is anything more interesting than looking in people’s first-floor windows? Third, matinees. A good play can seem even better in the afternoon.”
