Here is a maddening piece of ‘journalism’

“Larch March, there was an almighty uproar in Europe and around the world when the small island nation of Cyprus suddenly found themselves on the brink of exiting the eurozone …”

(There are two p-offs, one more than the other. “Larch” must be “Last.” OK. A not-paying-attention mistake or an editor-is-a-dumbish mistake. But the real p-off is “island nation … found themselves …”

(How in the world is an island a “themselves”?

(This is part of the greater malady in the world: Don’t know, don’t care.)

(I tried to access the Hot Air comments section but was told the page was “Unavailable.”)
