Lind­say makes her mark

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - VARIOUS LISTINGS -


Is there any ac­tiv­ity more pleas- urable than laugh­ing at the ap­par­ent stu­pid­ity of peo­ple richer, younger and more pow­er­ful than your­self? We are, of course, think­ing here of the in­creas­ingly wor­ri­some Lind­say Lo­han. The cal­low tear­away’s self-penned trib­ute to the late Robert Alt­man, in whose Prairie Home Com­pan­ion she ap­pears, fea­tured gram­mat­i­cal and syn­tac­ti­cal howlers that would em­bar­rass a chim­panzee.

“Make a search­ing and fear­less moral in­ven­tory of your­selves’ (12st book) -ev­ery­time there’s a tri­umph in the world a mil­lion souls hafta be tram­pled on.-alt­man Its true,” she typed. “God Bless, peace and love al­ways. Thank You. BE AD­E­QUITE.”

Spare a thought for The Ticket’s sub-edi­tors and their now puls­ing tem­ples.
