A typically incompetent farewell by the Sydney Morning Herald

For 21 years Alan Ramsey wrote a Saturday column for the Sydney Morning Herald. The last of them before his retirement appeared the Saturday just past.  I would like to be able to refer you to it but alas I can't. For some strange reason the Herald has chosen not to post it on its website.
What you can read is a thoughtful and considerate piece by David Marr describing a political journalist who was "right passionately, wrong passionately and patronised at times by his hardboiled colleagues for taking a stand in their shifting world."
