Pinkstone faces no-win situation

SPARE a thought for GIS spinmeister Mark Pinkstone, who found himself in Beijing yesterday, while the crucial decision apropos 2000 Olympics was being made in Monte Carlo.

Whilst complimenting GIS and the Environmental Protection Department on the excellent content, I am at a loss to understand why the government printer is not using re-cycled paper.
