MARCH ADO ABOUT NOTH­ING

Torque (Singapore) - - EDITORQUE - ED­I­TOR DAVID TING davidt@sph.com.sg

In the great scheme of things, an ed­i­tor’s ef­fort is in­signif­i­cant and a writer’s work is unim­por­tant.

Even if the ed­i­tor com­mit­ted pro­fes­sional sui­cide in ed­i­to­rial cap­tiv­ity, while serv­ing a gram­mat­i­cal sen­tence without the pos­si­bil­ity of pa­role. Even if the writer wrote till his fin­gers bled onto the key­board and brain­stormed un­til his cre­ativ­ity weather fore­cast be­came “cloudy with a chance of pain”.

But there is a proven painkiller for wounded writ­ers and jaded ed­i­tors in the mo­tor­ing me­dia – a nice drive in a nice ride.

The nice rides driven in this March is­sue are the Volk­swa­gen Arteon, Kia Stinger and Opel In­signia Grand Sport (pg 32 Group Test), BMW X2 (pg 44), Jaguar E-Pace (pg 52), Porsche 718 Cay­man GTS (pg 62), Alpine A110 (pg 66), Mit­subishi Eclipse Cross (pg 74), As­ton Martin DB11 V8 (pg 78) and Jeep’s Rene­gade and Wran­gler (pg 82).

Pop a pill, we will. Kill the pain, I wish.
