The Flare Path: A Phantasmagoria Of Foxers

By Tim Stone on August 16th, 2013.

The Flare Path turns two this week. Here in the UK that means it can legally hunt gruffalo, attend public hangings, and teach John Prine lyrics to mynah birds. To mark the occasion there‚Äôll be no news items or inscrutable intros today. The entire column will consist of quizzes.
