Pub culture Rashomon

Sam de Brito is rapidly becoming a must-read on The Age/SMH 's Blog Central. Sam's short story entitled The hummingbirds prompted a number of highly intelligent responses from different viewpoints.

To prevent these gems being lost in the comments, I have extracted them and posted them here. (Technically copyright infringement, yes, but I think it's a useful exercise. We shall see if lawyers jump up and down.)
