Accentuate the positive, or a hole in the bucket?
Headline writers, like the rest of the population, divide into "glass half empty","glass half full " groupings, as illustrated this morning in reporting on the Queensland Government's response on Freedom of Information reform."Anna Bligh shields her cabinet in revamp of FOI laws" in The Australian; "Government to loosen reins on Cabinet secrecy" in The Courier Mail . I'm sticking with my "rolled gold" of yesterday. Of course us armchair critics can always see ways for gold medal winners to improve performance.
