Another one bites the dust

There are so few people in public life who I admire immensely and two of that number died earlier this year, John Clarke and Mark Colvin. Now a third must be added to the list, the redoubtable Jill Singer who has died at the rather young age of sixty.

Vale Jill.

  1. I have no idea who Jill Singer is, but sixty is too young to die :(

    1. River, the easiest explanation is that she was a feisty journalist.

  3. My late mother was a journalist at RMIT and met Jill Singer over publications and coffees. She will be sadly missed.

    1. Hels, I expect your mother would have imparted some wisdom to Jill.

    1. EC, pleased that you know who she is. When she could not report what she wanted to, she took a fainting fit and ensured so much publicity.

  5. She was much too young and such a good journalist.
