I don't know how I got on to reading Richard Glover, he must have made some reference to Schoolies Week or something. But I have enjoyed what he has to say on a number of topics. At the moment he is with Fairfax... they sacked a ton of staff recently so maybe he isn't anymore. But anyway if you know how to use Google News you can read "Richard Glover."

He still writes for SMH and has a funny story this week about BBQs. Worth a read. Just go to google news and search for [richard glover]

You will probably 'get' it if you live in Sydney but there are plenty of funny bits for everyone in this week's (http://smh.com.au/news/opinion/the-more-things-change-the-more-the-horse-dung-takes-its-toll/2006/04/21/1145344276321.html) offering from Richard Glover.
HOW much has Sydney changed since April 1831? Flipping through the first editions of the Herald, published 175 years ago, it seems the tone of the town was set fairly early. Some extracts:
The Rocks. Friday. Residents of a beachside camp at Woolloomooloo have protested against the use of their beach by residents of the area known as The Rocks - punching and kicking the visitors in an angry melee. Woolloomooloo locals said they were "sick of these Westies always hanging around using our beaches". Sergeant Blunkett, of the NSW Corps, said such tensions were sure to dissipate once the colony matured.
