I have seen technological advances that have benefited journalism. Journalism is simple: report what has happened, don’t filter the story to fit any agenda.

News, views

I comment on subjects that interest me. I highly value free speech, so expect to be challenged. This is a worthwhile part of the craft but, sadly, many outlets have replaced news with opinion.


These are mostly from my early years on the Rockhampton Morning Bulletin newspaper. For 27 years, I worked in Brisbane as a sub-editor for the State’s largest newspaper, The Courier-Mail.


Old newspapers are a treasure trove of information. Here I record some items I found interesting. Some of it is weird and a little hard to believe. Hopefully you will get a laugh along the way.
