Time To Think
George Inglis reflects on life, usually while riding public transport around Adelaide.
00:16:01 Lainie Anderson

A recent Sunday Mail column by Lainie Anderson caught my attention when it proclaimed how helpful the NAPLAN tests are in our schools. Since then, I have noticed she has a knack of balancing thoughtfully between being a contrarian and a populist. She’ll also pounce on you if you say a bad word about her beloved Adelaide Hills.

STOP PRESS: Inspired by Lainie, Nigel has now become a ‘columnist’. His publication is SA Life. Here’s a PDF of his article, Pixelated Bliss? See it in all its glory in a physical copy of the magazine.
