Underworld, reader, thought





















The way in or the way out?

In the Grove, a grey-haired man on a bench is reading A Brief History of Time.

Tunbridge Wells, where I live, is in the news. The Borough Council has banned the use of the phrase "brain-storming" because it believes that it may offend people suffering from epilepsy. The charity The National Council for Epilepsy says that it has no objection to the term, which it claims to use in its own work environment. Tunbridge Wells Council prefers its employees to say "thought shower".

Great photo collage! I didn't know borough councils had the power to regulate speech over there - yikes.

The prohibition, apparently, applied only to the Council's staff.

A great collage! The amount of work that goes into those covers is truly impressive.

'Thought shower' sounds dreadful, something like brain-washing!

Wonderful collage.
