Australian Newspaper Editor May Want To Keep Reading Glasses Handy

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. Here's a reason never to forget your reading glasses. Peter Lalor covers cricket and serves as beer editor for an Australian newspaper. In that capacity, he stopped for a pint at a hotel in Manchester, England. He didn't have his glasses with him, and so he didn't see how much he paid - about $68,000. The hotel says it's investigating. Lalor says he is waiting for his refund. He says the beer was good but not that good. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
