  2. I have no idea Jo. What would someone write as a news story if it was just a practice piece? If it was me, I might write something totally untrue, such as John Howard and Pru Goward having a passionate long term affair. God, fancy if that was published.

  3. As usual, it's up to me to supply the correct info.

    It was an article about the "death" of Peter Hore.
