Here is one of the reasons I think Scotland might be a fun place to visit (as long as I don’t set myself alight or otherwise create the impression that I’m a terrorist). Although the headline is something short of poetry — it’s one of those situations where a long count actually works against you — I admire the joie de vivre with which the Daily Record copy editor approached the subject. Would a more subtle approach have worked better in a story about kicking a burning terrorist in the balls? I don’t think so.
