The Age Letters Page

The Age Letters page? It's the twitty trying to be witty.

UPDATE! - Oh, stop complaining. Somebody had to say it.

Quick, write more. I'm at work and I desperately need entertaining. Maybe just a lobotomy.

I ... can't. It's hot! So hot! I can barely lift my fingers, except to drink ... drink ... and drink some more!

It's a slow booze day.

So damn unfair.

Can't do anything because it's hot - lol! bloody southerners.

Caz said...

You were drinking BOOZE in that weather? Good grief! Are you sure you're still alive?

I'm not condoning the state of affairs in Australian detention centres, but it really fucking riles me when people compare them to gulags. Considering that letter came from an otherwise intelligent person how the hell do conclusions like this get drawn? To make a sensationalist point methinks, and to bring those not versed in the horror of Soviet history onto one's own side. Grrrrrrrrrrr.

I'm not sure what you're talking about, Rachy, but it sounds exactly like an Age letter. Some person sent in a letter to the paper today, and they didn't even bother writing ONE SINGLE WORD - they lifted the text from a book.

It was the LONGEST LETTER in the paper. And it was the usual fatuous comparison of Australia to Nazi Germany - 'we are becoming like them', that sort of crap.

I think I need ANOTHER drink. Actually, we all do. Drinks for everybody!!!!
