Murder of a typesetter | 01-Nov-08

Our enquirer writes:

"Maybe 6 years ago, Poetry Please (R4) broadcast a poem about how a man was so infuriated that the word not was omitted from his document that he murdered the typesetter. The judge, according to the poem, let him off being hanged, sympathizing with him over such a gross error."
