I suppose I should be piqued (observant readers will notice the fabric connotation in my choice of verb) that the Aucklandista should use my tagline of old as a headline for one of its posts; on the other hand I could be flattered. Either way, they have saved me the trouble of writing about the August edition of Metro, particularly its how-to-find-a-lawyer-to-get-you-off-anything article. Yes, you, Metro Reader can afford a shyster who specialises in helping people like you avoid a drunk-in-charge conviction. This means you can carry on drinking and driving; and they won't take your Audi away; meanwhile, you can continue ranting about those South Auckland kids, how they need discipline and to learn respect.
One further thought: should not Robyn be a Wellingtonista by now? Answers on a postcard to the usual address; the winner will receive a Bakelite telephone by return mail.
