Report Suez Canal closed (again) in General Boating Posted 2 hours ago Mind you, it's by no means the only sensationalist inaccurate rag. Many years ago, I was about to fly to a West African country to see my girlfriend (now my wife). A week before my departure date there was a report in a quality Sunday newspaper about the capital's Airport being closed. My flight took place as advertised (thank you British Caledonian), and I found out when I got there that the airport's main runway had indeed been closed -- for three hours on a Sunday, so that a part of it could be resurfaced. 1 minute ago, magnetman said: I never read what others write due to vision ossues. How can you tell that their writing was caused by vision issues? (To say nothing of ossues).
