Discovering The Truth

What's wrong with capital letters?

THIS is the weekly theme from Viewfromtheside’s Blog. 

I was going to go with my Dad’s cancer diagnosis or my Mum’s issueI’vedecidednottotalkaboutafterall: something grim for a dull Saturday.  BUT as I was typing I had a real revelation; here it is:

I discovered the truth about why all newspaper articles start with the first word in capital letters.  IT’S not to catch the reader’s eye or make a bold point: it’s because the typist’s fingers are too quick for the brain.

THINK about it: how many times have you had to go back and re-type the first word of every sentence?  I do it all the time. 

THAT’S one puzzle solved.  TWELVE million to go.
