newspapers and the absence of context

Few days ago I was in a bar and my eyes checked out the newspaper headlines of a local newspaper in the bar. I started reading a few lines “Sales date settled, it will be the 6th” “The city of Anghiari recovers from the heavy rain” etc etc. It took me a while to notice […]
