Quentin Johnson on Layla's Victory

I'm a bit slow, I only just discovered Quentin Johnson's article on the 2015 Wellington Open, which was won jointly by Layla Timergazi and David Cilia Vincenti - here it is:

For those of you who don't know, Quentin Johnson writes, to my knowledge, the only chess column in a New Zealand newspaper, in the Otago Daily Times. Wouldn't it be great if one of the Wellington newspapers had something similar? And isn't a column entitled "Girl Power Wins Through" so much better publicity than TV3's vile, lying, misleading take on chess, featuring the regurgitated ramblings of a 7 year old proto-sexist?

I'm not providing the link to that story, you can find it yourself if you're interested.
