COURIC: And when it comes to establishing your world view, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read, before you were tapped for this, to stay informed and to understand the world?

PALIN true quotes, folks : I ve read most of them again with a great appreciation for the press for the media, I mean…

COURIC: Like what ones specifically? I m curious that you…

PALIN: Um, all of em, any of em that um have been in front of me over all these years, um…

COURIC: Can you NAME any of them?

No, she cannot — not a single newspaper or magazine.

No wonder she thinks the world is 6000 years old.

Yet the Evening Standard, and the free paper farrago surrounding it, surely can t linger much longer.

Say the Standard and London Lite together are losing between £15m and £20m a year going into recession. Shareholders will doubtless want a few answers there. But say, equally, that Wapping s thelondonpaper remains stubbornly short of Lite readership levels, even though it dishes out 100,000 or so more copies a day. Rivers of red ink sloshed liberally without apparent end. We know that neither side reckons on blinking, because they say so. But we should also know that s blinking stupid as advertising slides off a cliff.

The path to contentment is well signposted but generally points in the opposite direction to where we want to travel. Instead we rush off getting everything we want and then realise we don’t need any of it. A quicker way to contentment is to realise you don’t need any of the things you think you want before spending 40 years trying to acquire them.
