Monday, October 16, 2006: I reject Prime Minister John Howard's assertion that we should show the same "level of compassion" to Australian victims of drought as to victims of the Boxing Day Tsunami. That terrible tragedy in 2004 killed over 200,000 peopl

Monday, August 21, 2006: It would be a shame if young Australians reading your report on outsourcing/offshoring (The Age, 21/8/2006) concluded that there are no longer careers in IT. On the contrary, when an input to business (like the IT function) gets

Wednesday, July 19, 2006: Embassy support is reserved for real Aussies. Those Lebanese-Australians didn't seriously think they were going to shirk collective punishment for what they did in Cronulla last year, did they? Fair's fair,

Tuesday, June 27, 2006: With fortune hostaged to the arbitrary and uncontested whims of petty officials (The Age, Opinion, 27/6/06), this is not a game for a free and proud people. Return soccer to the slum-dwellers and peasants who know only the cruel i
