BON GIORNO, BONGIORNO – Paul Bongiorno, who over his career migrated from news outlets that people pay attention to “The Saturday Paper”, doesn’t like a more popular columnist:

Rita Panahi has argued in “The Herald Sun” that the inconveniences of increased security are the price worth paying for preventing terrorist attacks. There are always arguments about the balance between security and liberty, and you can agree or argue with a broad spectrum of view on this topic. But Bongiorno, of Italian extraction himself – and presumably also because he is an intelligent and educated person – should know better what fascism is and what it isn’t. And maybe also that an Iranian atheist who doesn’t like Islamism isn’t.
I think we should all chip in and get Paul a little book for Christmas:
