Top-scor­ing scribes

The Courier-Mail - QWeekend - - UPFRONT -

On read­ing the re­cent col­umns by Mike O’Con­nor and Mary-Rose MacColl (Wry Side, Oct 10-11), I feel com­pelled to write and award both a “10” for their con­tri­bu­tions: “Let’s not play the race or gen­der card” and “Evolv­ing doors”. What won­der­ful writ­ers we have in Aus­tralia. May they con­tinue to thrive for many years. We are bom­barded with so much from over­seas coun­tries in ev­ery facet of jour­nal­ism that I fear our fu­ture gen­er­a­tions will not know what be­ing Aus­tralian is all about. I once trea­sured china that was made in England; th­ese days I make sure that the Aus­tralian-man­u­fac­tured pieces I still have are han­dled with the great­est of care.
