Unfortunately too many people take the irony of this Thurberish phrase too literally. They allow their daily newspaper to think for them. And their minds become limp from lack of exercise. A change to the Manchester Guardian soon cures this mental laziness.
Handicapped – if that is the word! – by having no ‘strips’, no gossip writers, no sensations, no scandals or spicy revelations – the Manchester Guardian relies entirely upon vivid writing and honest reporting. The result is a daily newspaper which is curiously stimulating. To read the Manchester Guardian every day is a delight to the healthy mind.
