Hooray for you Slinky – you are a friend to the environment. Where can a guy get a Bass legend’s autograph?

You have missed my point – I acknowledged that fact that a qualification was not terribly important for Foran’s comments, but it does raise an interesting point; I work in a Library, so does that make me a Librarian? No it doesn’t – ergo it does not entitle me to make statements about trends that I may not necessarily know much about. That is what I was asking about Foran. As for MY doctorate – it’s in Kiss my Ass, so you can choose whether to listen or not.

You do raise a fair point about cyclists – however I base my view on the fact that I have been to no other cities (I may not be as well travelled as others) that see nearly as many cyclists as we have in the ACT, and we have a comparitively small population.

Slinky – what basis do you claim that litter is more aesthetic than environmental? What bullshit – where does most of Civic’s litter end up? Lake Burley Griffin. Do I need to draw you a map as to how this will effect the waterways in and around the ACT?

As with Googong and the restrictions placed on that waterway I agree that a petrol motor in good condition will not adversely affect the water quality – however this is an example of the powers ensuring that the water supply stays as good as it is. I don’t disagree with you that it is more important to monitor the qantity, but preserving quality is important too.

To cut to the chase – whether you like my points or not – it was a bullshit article. ’nuff said.
