Is this really an editorial? Is this really really an editorial in one of Goa's leading newspapers? This is one of the recent editorials which appeared in the Herald recently. How does this stuff slip through? Yuck... its awful... Robin get yourself a dictionary man... or ask Melvyn to download the wordweb software on your computer... But knowing Melvyn he must have done that already... So use it... pls use it man... Also buy yourself a packet of alphabet soup man...

hey.. you missed the last line. "Patriotism is dammed." should be "Patriotism be damned."

Even after several criticisms (constructive) Abreau is not changing or is being careful.
Clearly he needed a kick on his backside. What a shame and low level professionalism from a paper that claims 100 years old.

Hey prick

You missed something else too.
Look carefully at the imprint line.
It says `Printed and published by Vinayak Pai Bir for and behalf of Ms Herald......'
Shouldn't it read as `for and on behalf of.....?
Robin is really a sad story.
He's reduced Herald to the pits. Guilherme's photo with the paper in the dustbin says it all.

Before criticising Robin, penpricks should make sure their house (read english) is in order.
In the penpricks post, the usage of the word `man' is very liberal.
Kindly explain the usage of the word `man' in three places. What type of English is this?
Before criticising Robin make sure your (Penpricks) English is impeccable.

Goa loves football, not cricket.

Robin must be a football fan. Must have felt bored to proof read a cricket article :)

A thought suddenly came to me. Could it be that Robin was engrossed in some local soccer matches and had delegated the task to Anthony (http://penpricks.blogspot.com/2007/07/mistakes-in-herald-going-by-quintal.html)?

Leave Robin alone, man, because these days he is busy trying to defeat a coup against him by his own confidants in Herald. If rumours are true, then Robin would be on his way out of Herald before New Year. Ha! Ha! Ha!

Congrats on heralds new veture HCN.(H... Cable Network) which consists of all ..............
Its harldy seen in the town, the HCN is worst than the print version of the Herald its more of PR related jobs & Tiatrs. where there are marketing monkeys like Mr T who come drunk to work. This is the worst Electronic channel ever seen in the Goan media & why not afterall i have heard its run by Philipino people ......
Penpricks see that you Please post my comment without editing it. thanks & hats off to you!!

That is not the end of Milan Burman Public Relations Company. It is now rechristened as Milan Kedar Media Corporation.

Guess why do I say this?

The recent IFFI advertisements were designed by Kedar Dhume's Advertising Associates and released in Herald & Gomantak Times by Milan Burman's Goa Communication.

Kedar removed his name only from the Advertisement key line for the last 3 days.

So guys wait and watch. This duo coming together will mean a lot to the journalists who are ever waiting to get either Ice-cream or popcorn.
