Hi Roje,
usually I would be happy to only I'm very busy this week with a public interest environmental law case involving Coca Cola Amatil. The material there at the SAM website is copyright free as per my free use statement here:
I get my kicks if my stories are lifted.
So you or any helpers can use any of it even in AMG publications! I'm all for free press man, really. It would be nice to have some acknowledgement but otherwise not necessary.
On the other hand if you want to flick me a fee to package two stories up say $25 each I could reorganise my schedule, though a bit painful.
Yours truly, Tom McLoughlin

Hi Tom,

Roje from City News here. Apologies for not following up our brief phone conversation the other week, re the Law Building development at Sydney Uni.

I was wondering whether you'd be interested in writing a short comment/opinion piece for our next edition of City News? I'd be interested in something on the law building and the blocked views from Victoria Park, or even the issue of B-double trucks you mentioned in city streets. Two interesting issues for our readers.

Because of the public holiday on Monday, I'm working on a very tight deadline, so was looking at perhaps getting something written up by this Thursday afternoon? Probably about 400-450 words if thats ok.

Thanks Tom. Hope to hear from you soon.
