  • @Kimbo_Ramplin Thanks so much and ditto. I had a pile of new voicemail messages for MT today… #
  • @lapuntadelfin @rod_benson @lyndons Well, thank you! But I am reminded David Frost asked Whitlam in 1972 what quality he admired in McMahon. #
  • @lapuntadelfin @rod_benson @lyndons "His persistence," was the reply! #

  • Earlier today, I tweeted this Christmas greeting I received from a lawyer friend: http://twitpic.com/3iww11 (I think he plagiarised it!) #
  • I do have trouble entering into the spirit of things…. http://youtu.be/nWMTF5fLA6o #
  • … and you have to go directly to YouTube to watch it… #
  • @ern_malleyscrub That is no way to talk about Australia's political journalists. #
  • Bah, humbug! http://auspol.info/hbOXXZ – Paul Krugman shows that the fundamental issues of public policy haven't changed since Dickens. #
  • @Colvinius I'm on the phone, waving my hands around demonstratively…! #
  • @Colvinius Thank you and compliments of the season also. #
  • @Gibbot5000 Is this better? , #
  • @RealJohnRocket The end times have come early! #
  • @RealJohnRocket Thanks and ditto. No sign of @smurray38 for the last few days. #
  • So where are the online papers this Saturday morning? #
  • Sally Quinn on C-Span says the US is more likely to get a gay president before it gets an atheist president. #IHaveNothingElseToTweet #
  • Quinn is the wife of Ben Bradlee, her former boss at the Washington Post. A great job interview story here: http://auspol.info/htZOev #
  • @adullard They never publish on the anniversaries of births and deaths of deities. #
  • @adullard It's that gauging tone problem again. #
  • @adullard You should never use emoticons – it's intellectually barren, embarrassing, juvenile and puerile. #
  • @adullard We've got a perfectly good language – why discard it for hieroglyphics? #
  • @adullard But of course you should make up your own mind… #
  • @adullard Of course not. The challenge is to be pithy and concise whilst still using proper sentences. #
  • @adullard I will permit the occasional "&" but that's it…! #
  • @s_pearce This morning, today's edition of The Age wasn't appearing in the app. It was there later. I got it from PressDisplay.com instead. #
  • @adullard It's too late – I've judged you already. #
  • @Kimbo_Ramplin So are you telling me you've now got an iPhone? Have you got THE app yet? #
  • @adullard Anyway, I'm not linguistically pure. I make lots of errors but I haven't reverted to the written equivalent of grunting… #
  • @RicRaftis Check your DMs… #
  • @s_pearce Press Display has an iPad app too – highly recommended. #
  • @s_pearce They have a desktop application as well which is more efficient than using your web browser. I pay $10/month for 30 papers. #
