@ Karen. Hillary Clinton:”Twenty years ago, I wrote a book called ‘It Takes a Village.’ And a lot of people looked at the title and asked, ‘What the heck do you mean by that?’ This is what I mean. None of us can raise a family, build a business, heal a community or lift a country totally alone.”

I maintain that if anyone must insult, do it with your name.
Village has more than a definition and is not relevant to our contemporary way of life. So let us use the word Community.
The people who helped were neighbours, strangers in the street, as well as professionals, of course.
I still look after children who are not Aborigines, and do not believe in spanking, but in strong voice if needed. One mother told me: “Do not raise your voice when you talk to children. I wonder about the future behaviour of the child.

Laurence, accept my apology for your my remarks about your pseudonym. I suppose I was upset by your rich colorful language telling me that I am an idiot because of my beliefs: “Usual useful idiots chanting that it takes the whole of a village to raise a child.” Your quote, not mine! So I thought if I need to be insulted I want to know the person who does it; fair?
I quote Hillary Clinton to show that “village” does not mean buildings, but “community”.


Pack of girls attacked me, says Chinese on working holiday
I have questions for Maccas supervisor and staff:
• She started at 10pm and the shift ended at 2am on Sunday. She must be tired.
• When she left she discovered her bike had been stolen. Does Maccas have no secure parking for staff?
• So she set out on foot to the home of a friend in the Old Eastside, where she is staying. Could anyone, as she was not alone, have given her a lift? Or called a taxi? I was under impression that it was the employer’s responsibility to insure the safety of their employees.

I agree with you Janet, bandaids government not only is all wrong, but it underlines the paternalistic colonialist ideas.
This mentality characterises the restriction of the freedom and responsibilities of subordinates or dependants in their supposed interest.
We look after you doctrine of cultural hierarchy and supremacy, as you are incapable to look after yourselves, we keep you in the gutters and we all have a jobs.


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.


End of search for Monika Billen
RIP, Monika. Very sad indeed. Maybe the hotel could have alert or emergency beacons to lend or hire to the visitors (mobile phones do not have coverage most of the time outside of Alice), with hiking advice pinned on the room doors.

Ntharipe Observer: You have excellent points to argue the dilemma caused by alcohol. However, you make it sound like in a community there are more violent alcoholics than responsible men and women.
Groups similar to Neighbourhood Watch could be formed, supported by the local police.
Neighbourhood Watch is a successful community-based crime prevention program aimed at the protection of property and personal safety.
It is not simple but can be done as it must be easy to spot a foreign cars entering or visiting the community.
No question of martial arts or any other physical violence: Citizen arrest should be enough and if followed by the destruction of the vehicle would send a message to traffickers.
