Jozef Imrich, name worthy of Kafka, has his finger on the pulse of any irony of interest and shares his findings to keep you in-the-know with the savviest trend setters and infomaniacs.
''I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.''
The State Election has catapulted NSW to the dubious honour of redneck capital of Australia, writes managing editor Dave Donovan.
IF THERE IS one good thing to come out the terrible NSW Election result, where the corrupt, koala-killing Tories were returned for a third term, it is the validation it has provided to us much-maligned Queenslanders. Up here in the Sunshine State, we have over the years copped our fair share of criticism. Joh Bjelke-Petersen (Dutch) didn’t help our cause. Nor the Fitzgerald Inquiry.

Thank you Q&A and Teena McQueen for providing on Monday night what will likely be the greatest televised train wreck of 2019.
Back to the backbench
Minister for Mental Health Tanya Davies last night announced she does not want to be considered for the frontbench due to family reasons.
Her decision comes after Niall Blair's announcement he will quit Cabinet and eventually politics.
"I came to the role with my newborn son, Harry, and my nine-year-old daughter, Laura. At this time in my life I have decided I need to spend more time with my family and more time closer to home in my electorate representing the people of my community," she said in a statement.
Voters in the electorate of Mulgoa returned Ms Davies to power on a margin of 2.7 per cent on Saturday.
