Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'I was reading the other day the story of an air flight. They had a long and dangerous journey to undertake, and before they set out, they made a list of the things they needed. But when they were ready to go, the plane was too heavy. They jettisioned much, but still they could not take off. They had to whittle down to a bare minimum. But they did not throw out a single pint of patrol.'
