More Mystery

I've hesitated for a while about where to put this passage from the Sunday Telegraph. Is it a sub-editing mistake, (in which case it should by rights be appearing at, or is there someone out there who actually believes that Piers Morgan is 'luminous':

Meanwhile, if you want genuine luminosity, look no further than this unkempt house around the corner from me:

    As for language, I can't recollect where we came across this (and maybe wherever it was you saw it too) but it was someone saying "for all intensive purposes". I must say, I do like my purposes to be intensive. You wouldn't want them any other way would you?
