“‘Worst’ rail firm goes from bad to verse,” by Alan Hamilton from The Times, wins best title for the day. As part of this article on First Great Western hiring Cornish poet Sally Crabtree to perform at selected stations, there is an offer for poets to e-mail poems to The Times about trains and railways.
Speaking of trains, I always think of Harry Potter and the Hogwarts Express at the mere mention. Over this past weekend, I finished reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and I was quite blown away by just how good J.K. Rowling’s final Harry Potter tale finished. There’s a reason the book has such tremendous sales. (And now I’m sad that the adventure is over.)
