MEMO to Peter Preston, editor and managing director of the Guardian: beware a smidgen of sloppiness creeping back into your paper, once notorious for its misprints. Refer to an article on prize-winning news photographs on page 36 of the Weekend section. The author notes 'the look on that Vladivostok woman's face as she presses the vegetable flesh'. Now look at the picture: what she is pressing is a fish. Check name of careless writer for stern talking to. He is . . . Peter Preston, editor and managing director of the Guardian.
