Ripping into Jamie

Elizabeth Farrelly in the SMH writes a very readable article on young Mr Packer, a man who lost some two billion dollars recently and for whom the nation weeps not.

Here's an excerpt:
"I mean, a normal person might feel compelled to do something useful with the loot. Not just $X million to uh, cricket, or to the Victor Chang Institute on the basis that "research can also make money". But a school for Zimbabwean AIDS orphans. A continent-wide array of solar cells. A writers' colony (I picture them nesting and squabbling on some windswept headland, like gannets, but I digress…)"
