Comment on The Desert Knowledge upstairs-downstairs dilemma by Hal Duell.

Thank you, Erwin, for the image of the running tap. Is it true that water has been flowing down this plug hole for one year? Unfortunately, I tend to think that that is probably an accurate statement.
And this goes to the heart of so much of the Alice Springs “problem”. We are top heavy in intellectualising, in conceptualising and in framing answers to the bigger picture, while either not seeing or ignoring the bleeding obvious.
We need to fix the leaking taps.

No ‘comprehensive business case’ yet for gallery
I think that whether the art gallery is eventually built somewhere in Alice or, as seems more and more likely, in Adelaide, the whole exercise will go down as a textbook study in how NOT to progress a major project.
I don’t know what this means for the Gunner government, but the longer he pushes it, the more the fable of Br’er Rabbit and the Tar Baby spring to mind.


Panel of just two for controversial Ilparpa decision
What! A social engagement with the PM in preference to a local issue that really matters. Onya, Jimmie and Jamie, ya pair of wannabees.


Cr Melky breaks silence on Code of Conduct complaints 
Onya, Rex. If ever there is a local theatrical adaptation of The Silver Skates I hope you take the leading role.
