'Why nobody reads newspapers any more'
'For a start,' I said, 'there should be several empty beer bottles, covered in dust, on the window sill. The floor should be covered in crumpled intros. There should be a reporter snoring on a damaged sofa, the sound of singing from the lift and weeping from the Ladies. At all times there should be a discarded bra in the paper bin.'
He was aghast.
'We've put a stop to all that,' he snapped.
Which is probably why nobody reads newspapers any more."
