We interrupt the packing of moving boxes...

...to bring you a NOT so important bit of information.
I was about to crumple up a page from The Mail to put in a moving box when I noticed the following article:
A president who's as exciting as concrete
It was a review of Jimmy Carter's new book. At first, Carter is praised as "...the first former United States president ever to have published a work of fiction." (Hmmm...has any current U.S. president ever published a work of fiction...other than most speeches and press conferences???) However, the praise quickly takes a turn for the worse when the reviewer goes on to state "...that Carter is an absolutely dreadful novelist: his dialogue and characterisation are not so much wooden as positively concrete. He would be well advised to stick to non-fiction in [the] future."
