'If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools'
Rudyard Kipling's classic poem is repleat with wisdom and resonates two days after graduation. The speech I gave at graduation tried to be balanced and non political but the L-Orizzont decided to completely misquote what I said. Luckily they also gave me a different name .... Howard! How can you have a relatively simple job and still do a terrible job in a simple job? They didn't even understand the basic English used and created a meaning from my speech which defies understanding. It makes you despair about local journalism.
On a positive note, graduation was fun and a great experience ... made special by family and friends.

  1. This is just unbelievable and unacceptable. As you said Mark something so trivial becomes something so big. In Malta everything becomes a political issues and I guess that is why the orizzont said what it said though wrongly put ... because you did not praise the Government to the high heavens. Sometimes people have to understand that the truth is the truth and it doesn't look at faces ....

    Well done and congratulations once again
