The other day he put his interest in newspapers and the wider world together and came up with this: "Due to a fire at a printing plant this morning, the daily titles The Times, Sun, Telegraph and Liverpool Post are running several hours late the Sun might not even arrive at all.
"As a newsagent, it makes me laugh to see people who, unable to get their daily Sun from their local store, drive to other shops (in at least one instance this morning a trip of 12 miles) to buy their precious newspaper."
He points out that the paper costs 25p and the fuel £1.20 a litre.
I must admit I struggle to understand such loyalty to the Sun. What's it got that radio, TV, etc hasn't other than page 3?
