The Corner


Jonah: Welcome back. Boris has drawn my attention to this piece

by Bill Deedes, for whom I used to write leader-page articles when he was

editor of the Daily Telegraph (Deedes, not Boris).

It is an indictment of

modern civilization from a canine point of view. Quite right, too.

I note in passing that Bill Deedes (more properly Lord Deedes of Aldington)

is 90 years old–almost 13 in dog years! He was the model for the war

correspondent in Evelyn Waugh’s 1933 novel SCOOP. May you and I write as

well as this in our nineties.
