Editor’s notes for 21st Feb

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  
“Two people die in the city –
Of building collapse and spurious liquor.
One column, page five. People die.
 
Mob fury destroys property, guard dies.
Don’t give coverage to the lumpen elements
One column, page five.
 
Militant attack claims six lives.
Cover the seminar on cross boarder terrorism,
And include the attack in the story.
 
Senseless violence, communal frenzy.
Let us not add fuel to fire –
Two columns, no figures.”
 
Stop press: Editor found dead later in the night, throat slit.
Investigation hints personal enmity. The paper carries the obit,
And the news of the killing. Two columns, front page. People die.
