Some guy I knew......

Not many people can say this........

David Penberthy has just sold his soul and been made editor- in-chief of the Murdoch (NEWS Corp.) daily in Sydney. The Daily Telegraph.

David and I used to hang out at the Adelaide University "On Dit" student newspaper offices in the late 80's. He used to write a bit and I used to sell advertising/stabilise things with my country boy good manners in an environment ruled by highly neurotic personalities.

I was once helping him type up a movie review as I was on computers a lot and he was an arts student in the late 80's with limited keyboard skills. I deleted the whole 3000 word review on the OnDit Macintosh when trying to save it.

So therefore I can proudly say....... I have deleted a Murdoch editor's work.


  • good job! shame you couldn't delete murdoch.
    have you talked to david since? just curious . . .

  • Nope...... but he may still have a soul. I read an article written by him describing detention centres that was very un-NEWSCORP like.

    I'll post the link later.

    BTW trying to leave comments on your blog is "hanging". I'll try again tomorrow when broadband is back to normal.
