Comment on Town still upset with Stuart statue, say researchers by Evelyne Roullet.

Dr Lovell said that early this year more than 20 artists, writers, and educators from different cultural backgrounds were invited to respond artistically to the 4m high statue, which has been situated in a public park in Alice Springs for the past four years.
May I ask if those artists looked at the statue with the 21st century eye or from one of 1870s era?
The gun? Not so long ago any one working in the outback carried one in his/her vehicle.
@ Fred the Philistine: What environmentalists have to do with the statue? I am what you call a “tree huger” and I like Stuart’s statue.

I agree with you Janet, bandaids government not only is all wrong, but it underlines the paternalistic colonialist ideas.

Fiscal emergency: Get rid of Ministers, says Opposition
How to we get a round ball to fit into a square hole? It is feasible and mathematically the round ball in a square hole fits easier and better that a cube in a round hole. The question is who is or are the round hole, the round ball, the square hole, the cube?
We have unusual individualists (by our standards) who could or would not fit into a niche or category with our majority.
May be we have to get outside the square we are in and see reality from a new perspective.
