HE was anxious there in the Green Room, just before 'The Late Late Show'. You could see Tom Meagher just wanted to get out there like maybe a football player in the tunnel before a big game.

Tom Meagher was about to tell his country the terrible story of how his beloved wife Jill was raped and murdered in Australia.

I have this picture in my head of Tom and Jill together. It is not a real picture in the sense that I had never met Tom and Jill as a couple. It's just an imagined scene. They are walking hand in hand, happy and relaxed in each other's company. You do an immediate, quick audit as we do sometimes on a streetscape and think "man, they're so good looking together. They have it all."
