Mary Kenny: 'Only once during two decades was I told a column I wrote was unpublishable'
The French have a famous saying which I believe to be true: "The more things change, the more they stay the same." ("Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.") Things change all the time, and dramatically, too. I hear people saying that there has never been so much technical change as we are experiencing now. The typewriter lasted 90 years: now our computers - let alone phones - are outdated within a twelvemonth.
