You mean the ones that were illustrated, the Sport and so on? Yes, regrettably.

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

I love the accent. When I was over there a few years back I went to a pub and at a table right nearby one fellow was talking about his 'kooze'. It was quit awhile later that I realized he was a farmer and he was referring to his 'cows'. :)
