Some of us received news of Roger Wright's appointment as chief executive of Aldeburgh Music with trepidation. The PR photo released announcing his arrival in Aldebugh has done little to change that.

If I knew more about photography, I might be able to figure out why comparison of those two pictures, creepy enough at first blush, get creepier the more you look at the detail and perspective. However, it may be nothing more sinister than just moving the entire building.

I endorse DJW's comment re the Peter Principle. It is, in fact, proven countless times every day, in every field of endeavour there is. The problem is that the PP was so obviously fitting for jokes on talk shows and in comedy acts, that the very true and serious nature of it was never really taken seriously when it was first published and hasn't been since other than by a few.
