Quote of the moment

"I have to tell it again and again: I have no doctrine. I only point out something. I point out reality, I point out something in reality which has not or too little been seen. I take him who listens to me at his hand and lead him to the window. I push open the window and point outside. I have no doctrine, I carry on a dialogue." Martin Buber

  1. Hi Donna, The Guardian is not a tabloid! Even thought like many UK papers it publishes in the smaller format these days, it's still what we would call a broadsheet.

    It used to be that all UK tabloids were half size papers and all UK broadsheets were large, but not any more. The Grauniad is definitely not a tabloid!

    Tabloids are papers like the Sun, Express, Mirror, etc.

  2. Opps =] Thanks for pointing that out.. Will correct it shortly.
