The normally excellent Mark Dapin has been writing in Saturday’s Good Weekend about the thirteen things Canberra needs to be considered a world class city.

Thoughts dear reader?

The Post Office in Civic has a clock. The bus interchnge also has a street level digital clock.

On point 2. We do have clocks in that building along Alinga Street…except the two clocks don’t tell the same time. Well, they don’t tell the right time to start with. 🙂

I agree with the view that he’s mocking other places rather than Canberra. I also agree that he’s an outstanding writer, but this effort seems a bit lame.

Whatever the case may be, I’m happy for outsiders to mistakenly believe that Canberra is a bad place to live. I’ve been here since 1976, and having travelled over large parts of the world (Europe, Asia, America), I’m always glad to get back here. I don’t want to live anywhere else.

How about a safe place for the local lesbian community to express itself? Bet we don’t get any focus on that.

Or the new cafe in the city where you will get your coffee, not only served by a lesbian, but, with a smile as well. Or will she be wearing a bow tie? Can’t remember which.

Isn’t this what happens to everyone who goes to a Pogues concert?

I would’ve said light rail, rail or subway was a something worth mentioning.

Who needs a clock when you have a carillon?

I actually enjoyed this article.

I think we need a wall… perhaps one encircling the seat of democracy to keep the sheep inside.
