What is it...? Apr 1, 2009

...about journalists and reporters (and some of my closest friends are or have been one!) that they just can't seem to keep even the simplest ideas straight? Take this article's opening sentence:

'The US has already lost more than a third of the indigenous languages that existed before European colonisation, and the remaining 192 are classed by Unesco as ranging between "unsafe" and "extinct".'

Having said that, the article looks interesting and worth reading. Thank you for the pointer!
