IN last week's Editor-at-Large column in The Crow you made reference to the possibility of your being challenged as to whether you were old enough for a bus pass, as you are someone who is not balding and hardly has a grey hair.

Editor-at-Large: The thought of taking buses all the way to Land's End is not so much a challenge, but an endurance test I do not think I will be undertaking.
