Fairfax Media Director Jack Cowin knows how it goes when old men get drunk over a long lunch. He seemed philosophical about the incident in which John Singleton lunged at him with a broken bottle.
"You know how these things go...... a long lunch......we were just like bear cubs playing around in a cage."
It happened yesterday at Kingsleys Steak and Crabhouse at Woolloomooloo when Singleton got angry at something Cowin said or did.
Singleton obviously forgot his age, now 73, and made a complete fool of himself when staff rushed in to restrain him.
But he's not sorry. Later, when he was leaving, he was asked about his view on violence, he said "I f...... love it! I f......love it!
Sigh, some things never change.
