Tintin.....

.....occupies the 'in praise of ' leader in the Guardian today. "Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the 14th Dalai Lama are not the most obvious company for a cheery round-headed Belgian reporter ... but yesterday a ceremony in Brussels brought them together."

Being a radical journalist obviously endears him to the Guardian especially because "Tintin sides with the oppressed, fighting Nazis, communists and capitalists alike. By the 1970s he had taken up blue jeans and yoga.." . But no mention of open-toed sandals, wishy-washy liberalism or organic muesli.

Tintin is great and that is all. Not all Guardian readers eat muesli! *g*

Most things I have to think about; the greatness of Tintin is instinctive. Also I was commenting on a previous entry as you were posting this one!
