King of the Cross?
The SMH today ran a long colour piece about John Housain Ibrahim, apparently known as 'King of the Cross' and reportedly a powerhouse behind the district's popular nightclub industry. He seems to be a lot richer than me!
What I'd give for a long chat with him, to learn about the place from the top down instead of seeing it from street level. But it wouldn't be over a beer, first because I don't like it much and second because he claims to be a teetotaller. The Law seems to think he is a drugs and crime boss but they've never been able to pin a single thing on him in 21 years of trying.
