Comment on Anzac or Desert Park: More Qs than As by David Woods.

I note that the SA Liberals had an election placard that proposed a National Aboriginal Culture and Arts space on the old Royal Adelaide Hospital site. Might that have some impact on these two proposals … if it is serious?

Experience Aboriginal culture in the heart of the CBD
Wonderful to hear about this language project. Well done.

No-brainer # 2
I totally agree with the senseless carnage of the trees. I saw it on Friday.
Firies (or someone) obviously had been there and put the perimeter fire out and left the grass burning in the midst, lapping the trees.
My hope was that being a reasonably cool fire, that they would be OK.
I nearly rang and got them to come back but was hopeful all would be well.
Over the weekend the fire got into the trees one by one and lay them flat.
It’s a law not to cut trees down, even pick up branches from the river, but seems burning a forest is OK.
I am keenly awaiting the response from your request for an explanation.

Boardwalk now a permanent blight on the landscape
In the meantime, the pedestrian and cycle path through Heavitree Gap offers no protection to pedestrians and cyclists from cars, buses, road trains and whirling winds … a fatality just waiting to happen.

Missing Ryder brother’s remains found
What can one say? Our love and prayers to Theresa and her family. A double tragedy.

Council’s next gig: rubbish dump in town’s centre
Sounds like a great idea … a rubbish tip in the middle of town.
We could add it to our tourist attractions … the BIGGEST rubbish tip. Why should we hide our rubbish, our packaging, our consumer trash (buy for the sake of buying), our non repairable appliances, our throw away culture?
Let’s put it in the middle of town … Kmart carpark would be a good place or next to the Post Office … let’s show off the whole gambit of our consumer culture from purchase to disposal (oh, we’ve left out manufacturing … let’s keep the really dirty bits overseas).
It might help us to buy less, recycle more, compost food scraps, and work harder to clean up our own rubbish … or not make so much in the first place.
