I am retired from the Uni. of Queensland, and have numerous interests inside and outside of the uni. I play classical, bluegrass, country and folk guitar (hows that for a mix?) I am a member of the Australian Labor Party and am currently branch secretary of the Mt Coot-tha branch. I'm also involved in developing virtual reality builds and websites. Never bored!

Is there honesty in the 4th estate?

In a word -- yes, and if it's sometimes hard to find, there are occasional gems that because of their brilliance grab and hang on.

One such is Margo Kingston's book "Not Happy, John!" recently published and launched in Australia. I won't attempt to do a book review here, but suffice to say that for Australians at least, it's a very important read and couldn't have come out at a better time.

Like Mike Moore in the USA, Margot Kingston brings to our attention some of the deep and underlying pathologies that current rignt-wing governments are reluctant to share with us.

The book launch statements, reviews, etc. may be found at

Go there -- read -- enjoy -- weep...
