You know what struck me most about this news story?  It’s a total of 3 sentences long, with each sentence forming a separate paragraph.  After the story, there’s this:

(Reporting by Alexei Dovbysh; Writing by Christian Lowe; Editing by Charles Dick)

It took 3 people??

Maybe the editor cut out a couple of pages of an in-depth story on drunk driving.

What?  No credit for a translator?  Maybe he cut that out, too. wink
