No Crap App: w/b 12 Nov 2012

The week that was…

The Royal Commission was big news this week, with some suggesting the debate over the confessional was an unnecessary distraction. The Australian’s Paul Kelly criticised it for focussing only on institutionalised child abuse, when so much of it occurs within the home. Elsewhere, Irvine and Jericho did their best to improve our economic literacy, Dunlop and Green continued their dissection of the media, and some writers lifted their eyes past Christmas to the 2013 federal election. Also included is a longer read from Linda Jaivin on writing.
