Thanks Kevin for putting this up each week. I know that in theory I could log on to the Telegraph myself, but I'd probably almost never get around to it and it's so easy to click on your link. Yes I've sometimes been trapped into following other leads and used up my monthly quota but I can usually catch up within a week or so.
 
Incidentally I subscribe to one online paper here (I live on a farm and it's easier and cheaper) and I've often thought that I should do the same with a UK and a US paper to broaden my horizons. Do you have any suggestions on which ones. Probably to the heavier side of center but still accessible to someone of (approximately) average intelligence.

PS. What I described as "this week's column" in my last posting under this heading should have been called "review of the year's viewing". Apoligies for that.
