Jon Worth is one of those people who ended up in the blog reader for some or other reason and have just stayed there over the decades. For many years it has been a series of complaints about cross border train tickets within the EU. Well, someone’s got to worry about such things.
I’m exorbitantly happy that such people do exist as well. Without them we’d not have detailed maps of every Eiffel Tower copy in the world. We don’t in fact need such maps but civilisation is made richer by their existence.
One other thing I recall is that Worth attempted to get selected as a candidate by the Labour Party. Can’t recall, MP or MEP. Probably the second. I tend to be happy about his not succeeding.
On the grounds that the world is made richer by having people who make maps of every extant Eiffel Tower copy but not necessarily by being ruled by people who will make maps of every extant Eiffel Tower copy. As with myself – the monomanias are different – I like to mutter that I occasionally add to the gaiety of nations but I think it would be a category error having me running one of them.
