Letters to the Editor

From time to time, a commentary on the world will bubble up inside of me to the extent that I'm forced to write a letter to my local, metropolitan, daily newspaper, The Age. This is where I blow of some steam. Feel like venting too? Add your own comment or visit my homepage.

Medical Indemnity

The doctors' union needs to get some members to specialise in spin. The perception out there is that they get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, for a guaranteed job, with the right to set and evaluate the standards of themselves and their colleagues, all while running a closed shop. Plus, they get to shift the costs of their mistakes onto the taxpaying public and grumble loudly about interference from outsiders like judges and juries.

At least government ministers have to run the gauntlet of an election before we grant them such privileges.
