Iota

Pity the Greeks. Their economy is in tatters, they’ve lived beyond their means for years. Their alphabet has been appropriated by obnoxious frat boys and snotty sororities . . .
     But I really don’t want to talk about the Greeks. I want to talk about the scourge of editorial tyranny. Did you ever wonder why your favourite columnist rambles on pointlessly on some irrelevant topic? Because his editor told him to. Thus he fills his column inches with a catchy intro, some blinding insights, a clever quip, loads of filler and a stale conclusion before deadline, although the topic matters not an iota.
