There’s no need to mention everyone
WOULD someone please buy the Travel section editors a blue pencil. Why? Because I (and I am sure many other readers) am sick of the irrelevant references in most, if not all, travel articles to the authors’ mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, spouses, partners, children, roommates and pets.
What is this penchant of a seeming obligatory mention of everyone and anyone the writer has communed with in the last 48 hours in every article?
