    Sometimes even the Devil has good tunes?

    There is, unfortunately, little of worth to be found in the Australian media (let alone The Australian), Crikey being a rare exception. Newspapers such as the SMH and the AGE used to be of high standard, ranked amongst the world’s best, but no longer so. Why bother with the mediocre (and occasionally hilarious) AFR when one can read the FT with its intelligent and well written reporting and comment? Chalk and cheese!
