This Signpost "Featured content" report covers material promoted in the second half of September

John Oliver made this church to satirise the way
Anyone, without scrutiny, can have a tax-exempt payday.
Ormond Beatty, nominated by PCN02WPS
Centre College, in Kentucky,
To get Beatty as pres. was surely very lucky.
Sun in fiction, nominated by TompaDompa
It used to be inhabited; nowadays, it's not
But if there is an inhabitant, I'll bet you they're hot!

But losing first place has to hold such a stigma.Guest-written by Vaticidalprophet

As to design a building for a seller of soap.

An event that entered the history book-er,

But he had a respectable life after being banished to Australia.

To announce the first comprehensive account in English.

It's about this book binding material, but it's not bound in

To at last out-snooker old Steve Davis.
