*** NEWS ANNOUNCEMENT
It is very unfortunate, but Fairfax have for whatever reason (since late July 2014)
declined to accept our contributions for publication in The Age, and Sydney Morning Herald, and online.
Our faithful journalist, Rod Myer, is seeking an alternate publisher.
The contributing team is hopeful that an alternative will soon be found.
