If you are confused about E News delivery this week - it is coming to you on a Wednesday and will do for the issue in a fortnight's time as well. This is to allow me, the E News producer, to sit my final law exams - AND it gives you an extra day to get your stories into us before the next issue on Wednesday June 22. After that normal service will resume.  Happy reading...  Josie McNaught (almost LLB)
