This leader of the Economist reminds me of Dino and Luigi Vercotti of a classic Monty Python skit (Army Protection Racket)
"You've got a nice country here, Argentines. We wouldn't want
anything to happen to it. it would be a shame if...'Cos things break,
don't they? International credit breaks, things catch fire..."
One hopes that, in the same fashion, an officer in charge would stand up:
"No, no this is silly. The whole premise is silly and it's very badly
written. I'm the senior officer here and I haven't had a funny line
yet. So I'm stopping it."
However, I'm not holding my breath for this to happen: after all Dino and Luigi were funny. The article is not.
