Who is Darius Nakhoonwala?


So who is Darius Nakhoonwala? I thoroughly enjoy his weekly musings in
The Hoot on, of all things, the edits our daily papers write.

Drawing upon his rich experience of "nearly three decades of analyzing editorials," he confidently offers an interesting reason for the lack of insightful editorials about the visit of Japan PM Junichiro Koizumi:

...foreign dignitaries must not end their visit on a Friday evening or a Saturday morning. The reason: by and large the editorials about their great achievements during the visit tend to be very casually written because there is no edit meeting on the weekend and the poor chap who has to write the edit does so in beery resentment.


Ah, beer.

But who is Darius Nakhoonwala? It's obviously a pseudonym, and a good one at that. Anyway, read the whole piece.
