It's as exciting as a new Emma Tom column

Read the column on swinging singles. I particularly like the description of club policy saying it is OK to say no (to group sex with a stranger) because otherwise some Barbie look-a-like would end up with Con the Fruiterer.

There seems to be some serious unhealthy female stereotyping combined with ethnic discrimination going on here.

Its the SMH's attempt to get some street cred by asking 'real people' about such important issues as Richard Wilkins or the teachers strike.

I reackon the replies are from Journos. Name a blog where correspondants reply like that, (I feel that.......)

What a pity that real issues are not discussed such as the sorry state of writing and bias at the SMH itself.

I read the print copy. It took me a while to work out what it was all about, then I cottoned on that it was only a wrap-around for the positions vacant.

The SMH thinks that people looking for jobs are all under 21 and look for them in newspapers instead of online. Somebody better tell the guys at Icon.

Fatuous rubbish, but good for garden mulch.
