The indefatigable G-Man again looks for a precise 55 words of weekend wisdom. I break Rule 1 - my story is sadly true, or truly sad (?) - and so I reproduce here a heartbreaking communication recently received from our BBC. (Aunty Beeb to non-UK readers)

Haha! Better luck next time.
Eos Chater, violinist.
