The lads at the table of knowledge at the local watering hole were in all sorts of moods this afternoon. Some were over the moon that galloper Protectionist won the big event while others were terribly upset about the tragic demise of the race favourite.
To lighten the mood, Eric produced a copy of today's Examiner.
Eric, who's just a little bit longer in the tooth than other table members, had a real decent cackle about the typo in the Backward Glances column in today's DEX (see below). Eric recalls his wife attending the 'elite" deportment school course but is adamant there was never any mention of young, or for that matter, any wine being part of the show.
Eric is now asking a lot of questions.
