Yes. This seems to be the answer. Last week The Times published a cookery column by someone whose only claim to fame is having served time for being responsible for 10%of the world's illegal cannabis trade.
So there you have it. (Or you could be be a disgraced politician - they seem to do quite well, too.) So why not give it a try. It's almost worth it, isn't it? And think of all the time you'd have to write while you were inside. After all, there presumably isn't much else to do, is there? I haven't seen many mail bags around recently.

It's when I read things like this that I begin to despair...usually I'm quite optimistic about what the world's future is - I believe that somehow humanity will muddle through to find the right path (eventually) - but when I read about this I really begin to wonder if I'm deluding myself. And The Times as well - supposedly a reputable paper!ReplyDelete
Judy, South Africa
You could be one of those people but you'd have to have a ghost writer as you yourself would have little talent for the written word. Dipshit celebrities also seem to have a niche in the publishing world. I guess I'll just continue to go about my pursuit in the old fashioned way.ReplyDelete
For best results the crime should also involve a celebrity. Kidnapping perhaps?ReplyDelete
Very depressing isn't it.ReplyDelete
Hi, Judy. Yes. Sadly, The Times seems to be slowly sliding downmarket.ReplyDelete
Yvonne, good for you!
Hi, Patsy. Well, at least this one had drugs, which is a start...?
Jenny, I quite agree.
