Final Bulletin


Apart from the time I spent working in London, I've lived pretty much all of my adult life in Melbourne.

Over the years I've seen many magazines come and go, as well as two newspapers.

Today though sees the end of an icon of Australian publishing, the weekly news magazine The Bulletin.

I was shocked when I heard of its closure this morning.

It's such a well respected journal. Our very own Economist.

And it's been a part of Australian life for 128 years.

Oh well.

As Ned Kelly once said - such is life.
