Catherine Deveny

I think Ms Deveny has the easiest job in the world. She gets paid each week to write whatevers going through her mind. We do that for free. We need to commercialise this site, so that I too can afford to dress like a Geisha. Or even better a Samurai...

I have not been offended by much of her work.

I guess if it doesn't include pie charts and searing neo-liberal economic analysis it wouldn't be to your likeing AJ :D

Phillip Adams is the best polemical writer in the country.

deal with it.

Correct Tim. Deveny has never let the facts, research and analysis get in the way of her arguments :)

I just can't get over the fact that they publish her stuff in the opinion pages... She's just not quality. And it has nothing to do with her politics. I will dislike her writing even if I agree with what shes saying!

But I too prefer Mr Adams.

P.S. Tim, stop using words I don't know.

'Women who have experienced unmedicated, natural childbirth are quite rightly proud of their achievement but some do have the unfortunate tendency to go on about it. And on. At every conceivable opportunity, sometimes in rather inappropriate contexts. For example, I know that Deveny gave birth on three occasions without any pain relief because I read about it. In her television column.'

read 1 article (politics), make no sense, read another, still no sense (I don't give a stuff what you do. I'm paid to write what I think), then another (Make a clean getaway from Getaway)http://www.theage.com.au/articles/2008/03/13/1205602242897.html
, still wondering if she is right in the head.

if she is a comedian, there must be plenty of people who like sour humour and poor jokes.
