London, UK, 14 April. Conrad Black, the publisher of The National Post, affirmed today that he has taken 'steps' to shut down The Notional Pest. In a statement that appeared today in his flagship newspaper, The Daily Telegrah, Mr. Black said (in part) the following:

I will bring all my considerable legal resources to bare (sic) on the case. Dr. Lip Shit (sic) may think he can continue publishing his silly 'news' but heel (sic) think again when a ceese (sic) and disist (sic) order is shoved up ... I'll refrase (sic) that ... shoved in, his ukly (sic) face ..."
The Publisher of the Notional Pest, Dr. Fred W. Lipschitz, MD, FRCSSR, OC, responded to Mr. Black's ill-phrased outburst with characteristic good taste and breeding: 
I am wounded beyond measure that Mr. Black would take such a position, but I will not respond in kind other than to say I am surprised that his statement reveals he has such a poor command of English, especially spelling. At the very least, Mr. Black should have tried to spell my name right.
