Autumn leaves now but an Inner-city Quickening is in the air. Vacant properties in Newcastle CBD have been purchased by Land Com (to do with State Government) for development. Links with another commercial development are likely. This is welcome news even when it is something like a take over by strangers.
Take over? Change. The mining baroness millionaire, Gina R, is buying up Fairfax media shares. It's the end and will test out editorial independence. Is nothing sacred? Was it insider trading? Today Fairfax announces very hugh drastic changes to its operations.
