First the bank collapses, now it's managing director!
Tim Marcus Clark, the former managing director of the State Bank of South Australia – which collapsed in 1991 with debts of $3 billion and forced a massive taxpayer-funded bailout and the resignation of then South Australian premier, John Bannon – died last month just a few days after Mr Bannon. The intensely private Mr Marcus Clark died in December, 2015, in Sydney after a long illness. He was 83.

Notice that Bob Ellis hasn't posted any writings to his site since January 2nd, one of the longest gaps in his output in ages. Any news from our convict-descendant cousins on whether this is significant?

'"Goodbye to a man who faced his demons and won," tweeted one fan.' Well, if that's winning...


I thought winning would be kicking the habit and remaining alive.
