Comment on Tourism smaller but better, pollies must talk to the people by Ted Egan.

What a joy to read such sensible comments from two experienced Old Timers.
In August the NT has the opportunity to elect an effective, hard-working government, for we will be living in a very different world post Corona. Thus, we need to have “the facts” enunciated for us in well-motivated but apolitical terms, as Charlie and Gavin have done here.
Well done Erwin, Kieran and Julius Dennis.
There are many other wise Elders out there, in splendid isolation in these crazy times “just waiting to be asked”.

Integrity put ‘Jak’ Ah Kit at the top
Jak must be rated among “greatest Territorians ever”. A lovely, articulate man, always reasonable, always wise. Condolences to the extensive family. Old Buffaloes never die …


A touch of light: Artityerrityerre, willy wagtail
Good on you Mike. Some sanity from somebody at last, in this era of drivel. Yes, pound for pound the Willy Wagtail is the bravest creature alive.


Library no go for unaccompanied Alice teens
Honi soit qui mal y pense! Unruly is unruly.


Library no go for unaccompanied Alice teens
What a sound idea! Aggressive, boisterous bobbysoxers are not needed in a library – a place for sufficient quietness, research, study, reflection, relaxation.
They should go to school first, to learn manners and how to read, write and study in appropriate circumstances.


The sound of stockwhips cracking and the thunder of hooves
Good on you Tanya. I so admire the life on a good cattle station.
The essentials: a good Boss and a good Missus.
Tanya, Brett, M’Lis and Ben were so lucky: Great parents, lots of good fun, music, learning essential disciplines from loving parents and companions.
Station kids can ride buckjumpers, walk cattle across Australia, drive trucks, yet they also derive so much benefit from our wonderful School of the Air, today demonstrating to the world the principles of education in isolation.
It’s a great book and I recommend it to all
