87. 公明正大

Fare and Square


A:   A journalist of the Daily News died this morning. He was an old

friend of mine. The police say he was not killed.

B:   But he must have had a lot of enemies.

A:   I don’t think so. He didn’t write any gossips or scandals. He only

wrote fair and square articles for women and children.

B:  I see. I’m sure he was not killed. He was starved to death.
