Why print it when we can read it at home?

As we wound up last night, news came in of The Economist naming India as one of the flawed democracies (remember John Kenneth Galbraith‘s famous label, functioning democracy).

The desk was quickly alerted. The idea was to sneak in a brief. The desk head, smart chap, took a print out of the long story as it appeared in the Economist and went home to read.

No story in the paper. End of story.
