Brevity and levity

 

Sir, – I am delighted to see that given the worrying times we are experiencing The Irish Times has not entirely lost its sense of humour.

In the edition of February 19th, the story of a man who stole clothes from a shop, having been rescued from the sea, appears under “Briefs”. – Yours, etc,
