Wails From Wales

6:15 PM -- Here's an actual email from a concerned Light Reader:

Dear Editor,

This morning I received the latest “light reading” e-newsletter and was greeted with the following strapline:

“Comprehensive analysis of the telecom industry and its suppliers from correspondents in every corner of the globe (apart from Wales)”

Well, I was so surprised I had to check that my 286 had not malfunctioned.

As a Cardiff-based (that’s in Wales, by the way) IT company who provides state-of-the-art monitoring and benchmarking services to the ISP and telecoms industry (well, we shoplift PC magazines from WH Smiths and then write a nice letter to the ISPs telling them what we think) you can imagine my hilarity and then concern.

I wasn’t even aware that there were other places outside Wales. Can you please provide evidence as frankly I don’t believe it?

Our reply, apparently penned by Larry, the Light Reading Attack Monkey:

Dear Reader,

We apologize for the shock, but perhaps you’ve missed the latest geographical news.

That’s right. According to the best authorities the EU could muster, what once was Wales has now been consolidated into the Irish Sea. A hostile takeover, we reckon.

How wet is your valley?

Keep those cards and letters coming.
