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.

The Farmers' Ransom

Those agrarian socialists have their hands out yet again - this time over phone subsidies. I can understand why they shamelessly demand free money - but why do we listen? Is the rural gerrymander that blatant that100,000 farmers can extort the rest of us?

OK, cockies, here's the deal: I'll subsidise you to my level of communications access and pricing once I can enjoy your level of air andnoise pollution!
