    This is a very interesting article on the death of Hookes. I was sad to hear about his passing, but I happen to agree with what the author is saying in this piece.

    Thanks for the link, I too agree with quite a bit of it. However it does seem to be a bit of opportunist criticism of rival papers..

    It seems like only a few months ago that was in the news. Last year must have gone very quickly.

    Lol that's true, but anytime The Age pokes fun at the Herald Sun, I'm fine with it.

    Agree with the article too. I doubt it would have been received well a year ago though. I still remember what happened with the Derryn Hitch incident.
