Matt Price you will be sadly missed.
I loved your balance on The Insiders.
I loved your insights on The Offsiders.
I loved your pieces in "The Australian" about the goings on inside the corridors of Parliament House.
And most of all I loved your passion for sport, particularly AFL ........and your beloved Freo.
Your columns made me laugh out loud on many occasions and your ability to see the "good and bad" on both sides of the political spectrum was very refreshing.
Thankyou very much.
Who is going to take your place? Certainly not Patrick Smith!!!
For those of you who don't know of him.........Australian journalism lost a real talent on the weekend. Diagnosed with brain tumors in September. Died age 45 (only 10 years older than me).
It is an appropriate time to reflect that no matter how hectic things get, and how many punches are thrown our way, we need to keep in the forefront of our minds how special and fragile our lives are.
