Some good news

It's not always doom and gloom, sometimes there is also some (linguistic) progress to report. For example, when booking a journey with Thalys, a high-speed train that connects the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and France, their booking form pleased me immensely.

And while the below leaflet for a regional Deutsche Bahn ticket has its problems (everyone pictured is white, and ‘Mitfahrer’ is a generic masculine term...), women are both part of the picture and the illustration.

It might not exactly be a revolution but it’s certainly some good news!
