Megafauna museum: Locals outnumber tourists
Because I am very curious about all sorts of statistics I rang the museum and asked how those figures are created.
I was told: “We simply ask people if they are locals or visitors.”
Interesting, as I have never been asked.

Curfew: What else could fix youth crime?
UNICEF works in more than 190 countries and territories to save and protect children.
World Vision is dedicated to helping vulnerable children thrive.
They work with communities to help them achieve their development goals and forge pathways out of poverty. They believe in building lasting change.
May be we should ask UNICEF and World Vision, to put Alice Springs on their list.
Shame on us, Australia.

Warlpiri don’t want Zachary Rolfe murder trial to be in Darwin
If the JUSTICE wants us to believe this court case is genuine, not bent, let the trial be in Alice.
We must forget races, hero, cop, crook but just plain facts.

Curfew: What else could fix youth crime?
“A curfew is incompatible with the human rights and freedoms recognised or declared in the international instruments” accepted by Australia.
What about: “Everyone should enjoy all the rights in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.” Article 3: “Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.
“We all have the right to live in freedom and safety. No one should be arbitrarily killed, or deprived of their liberty without good reason.”
