Lightweight

Reading the newspaper: Brookgreen Gardens in P...Image via Wikipedia

Look, I'm really sorry. Gulf News has been a constant companion to me for the past fifteen years and I regard this most hallowed of newspapers with great affection. The recent spate of GN-unfriendly blog posts is purely coincidence and certainly doesn't signal an outbreak of anti-GN sentiment.

But I picked up today's issue and it felt so light that I had to go back to my newspaper weighing habits. It weighed in at 470g, a new low for the newspaper that tipped the scales at a whopping 1.3 kilos last November, pre-crunch.

I stopped weighing it last week after it had settled down to a steady 670g on most days.

That's why Gulf News isn't delivered to my house anymore; too many ads.

Awww.. I don't want GN to wither away and die. Alright, OK, don't like its silly journalism beyond idiotism, however, damn thing's got sentimental value. They did bring about Junior News (late 70's early 80's) with Nancy, Calvin & Hobbes, LuAnn, Garfield - a whole lot of fun & games and reading. I hope GN lives. However, could use some shedding of 'fat' between the ears, shall help think and see perspectives, better.
