Million, billion . . who cares. It's a lot.

Our Swedish journalists are innumerate. They consistently use "million" and "billion" interchangeably. This is remarkable in a country that - according to myth - makes enormous demands on journalists and their educations.

The article above reports on a boondoggle that will cost 250,000 SEK. The headline below screams 250,000,000 SEK for the same crock of baloney.

I should probably mail the evidence of this "mistake" to SLA as a printout (this would greatly increase the chances of it actually getting to SLA compared with emailing) but the stamp might cost 5,500 SEK.
