111. Does Murdoch own the Sunday mail?
I am out of touch with all Murdoch owns these days. I do remember many a Sunday going to the milk bar to buy the Sunday Mail. It was the only real Qld newspaper to read at the time.
I have only been out of Australia since 1999.
If it wasn't for my American husband and my aging mother I would be back to QLD in a "New York Second". LOL!
cheers mate
Sandy
