Because it pleases me

A correction in the Times today:
An obituary on Tuesday about Richard Wright, a founding member of the rock group Pink Floyd, referred incorrectly to a school he attended. The school, the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School, is an independent day school founded by the Worshipful Company of Haberdashers, a guild; it is not a school for haberdashers.

What a relief to get that cleared up! But it may explain the pink in "Pink Floyd."

(The photo didn't come with the correction; I only wish it did.)

"Haberdasher" is one of my favorite words. And I love the pic. :-)

The word "haberdasher" three times in one sentence is some kind of record, I'm sure!
