Comment on LETTER to Janet Brown and Russell Guy by Hal Duell.

@ Russell
I thought the point of the exercise was to “nudge” both of you toward a compromise, a meeting of minds.
If I misread that, then I withdraw my original comment. If not, then I repeat – Nice try, Erwin.
For the record (again), I am all for alcohol restrictions, a point I have made many times before. I am also all for personal responsibility, another point I have made many times before. I don’t see them as mutually exclusive. If I crash my car, I am up for damages, at the least. But we also have restricted speeds in urban areas, especially around schools where it is acknowledged that some are more vulnerable than others are at other locations.
I’m not taking sides here, Russell. I quite enjoy following the pair of you over the hill and down the dale of your mutual admiration pact.

Looks like Wazza’s back
Jacinta was always on a hiding to nothing. Her own perceived sense of entitlement didn’t help her cause, but she was up against Snowdon who arguably doesn’t do much between elections, but once every three years he does win elections, and he wins them well.
The question now is, will Jacinta return to Council?


NTG asks AAPA to consult with custodians on gallery & new site
There are a lot of empty shop fronts in Alice right now. Perhaps we could have a pop-up Council. That might work.


Megafauna museum: Locals outnumber tourists
Erwin, a minor point, but when these large birds were first discovered a few years ago, they were referred to in the local press as the Ducks of Doom. Much better than Big Bird.


Budget repair: Check out the cost of this load of rubbish
Thanks for the story, Erwin.
You’ve detailed a journey into the bureaucratic maze of “it’s not mine / I didn’t do it”.
Talk about kicking a can down the road!
I also like your suggestion that the NT government sack half its public servants and compel the remainder to do their jobs.
That’s another can ready to be kicked down the road.


Massive horse deaths now a risk to humans
Are you saying, Eugene’s mate, that the dead animals should be left as a community health hazard while CLC asks for someone’s permission to heap them up for burning or for burial?
Or perhaps that’s not CLC’s job or problem, but then it never is, is it?
