“I am an exception to every rule. I am a working woman, I am single, I am not afraid.”

I so hope that the news stories of a week ago about the potential closure of the Observer newspaper don’t come to pass; it’s been my Sunday newspaper of choice for my entire adult life and always amuses (see last week’s brilliant David Mitchell column for a classic example), educates and makes me think.

An article today about a midwife in Afghanistan , as quoted in today’s blog post’s subject line, is the perfect reminder of how great a newspaper this is.

(So great, in fact, that today’s Sunday Times actually carries a letter, signed by a multitude of well known names, making a plea for the paper to be saved).
