An alert reader: “Jack Fowler’s pitch for Mr. Buckley’s book was not a
haiku. Haikus have syllables numbering 5 on the first line, 7 on the
second, and 5 on the third. His order was reversed, so it’s not a haiku.
Just wanted to alert the ombudsman, or somebody.”
Quite right, Sir. Jack, you just lost X-Box privileges for a week. Try to
be more careful in future.
