    It was one of those headlines on the front page of the June 9 print issue that has no actual story. I guess it didn't make it to their web site.

    I saw something on the internet about The Printed Word but didn't understand that it was referring to words printed with ink onto paper!
    I think they had that when I was a schoolboy but that was a long time ago.

    Visibility is crucial when biking. Ride with a lit highway flare in each hand.

    Now why didn't I think of that!!!!
