January 14, 2006

I finally managed to get broadband working at the weekender in Victor Harbor, though not wireless for the work laptop. The old computer I've been using is playing up--it operates on Windows '98. It is time to upgrade, as Windows 98 is very difficult to work with, and the computer is very slow. So it looks like it will take some time to set up a fully functioning office in the holiday shack.

When trying to set things up I accidently deleted yesterdays post. This was the post:

Are Australia's editoriial cartoonists cruel, clever or a nation's conscience? Tis a good question.

Bruce Petty

Leunig has a go at answering the question. He reckons they hold at a mirror at a factured world.

Hardly. They--cartoonists--make editorial comment. Biting editorial comment. Petty's cartoon depicts the threat of the current account deficit better than most of our economic commentators.

'Tis time the old mirror conception fo visual language is dropped, don't you think?
