Spam Jnr.

A reader tells us the the Dominion Post has just dumped its arts column and, by default, its arts reviewer Mark Amery. Wellington has had its local paper decide the arts are too boring (and too stingy on the advertising front) to bother with before. Mark Amery joins a long line of ex reviewers including Elva Bett, Rob Taylor, Neil Rowe and Ian Wedde. Auckland, on the other hand, loyal to a fault, sticks with T J McNamara.
