Thankyou Anonymous

By 9 May 2009 7

I want to give a quick thankyou! My girlfriend and I were out in Civic last night having dinner.  We'd parked the car under the new Civic Centre.  As we walked back to the car I discovered I'd lost my ticket.  We re-traced our steps trying to find it with no luck.  So we went back to the car ...

'Australia's underwhelming capital'

By 9 May 2009 38

I've found this interesting piece from the BBC's Nick Bryant on our beloved(?) city. I should state from the outset that I don't happen to agree with the hoary old joke that the best view of the city comes in the rear-view mirror as you head back to Sydney or Melbourne. Parts of it are stunningly...

Violent Scum VS The Kambah Kid

By 9 May 2009 9

The ABC reports a case of common assault against an "antagonistic" boy in Kambah.  Obviously, the report contains minimal information on which to form an opinion but I thought I'd form one anyway and see what others think. If anyone came hurtling up my driveway (emphasis on "my") after a good da...
