Chesterton had many, many quotable idioms, this being only a good one (many were great).

    As to remote, any negatives about the current administration in Washington will be in a very remote part of your newspaper, if it gets reported at all.

    I agree with Mike, a very good quote but just a little ambiguous. Perhaps the Bush, Cheney, and Blaire war crimes fall into that category; and, now, being perpetuated by the Obama administration - I love the way the press (Jim) has no integrity when it comes to reporting those fighting to regain their country back - we call them insurgence and terrorists.

    Excellent point, for what we really need to know about now is kept from us until it is too late to do something about it.
