50/50

Herald Sun - - OPINION -

MES­SAGE to all par­ents and driv­ers: Never leave kids in cars unat­tended. Not in hot weather, not in cold weather. Not for five minutes, not for a sec­ond. Never, ever, pe­riod. Geoff Phillips, Wonga Park DANIEL An­drews’ plans for the area un­der­neath Skyrail are ad­mirable but I fear the area will be­come a tar­get for van­dals, drug deal­ing, thugs and oth­ers of like ilk. I hope I’m wrong — but wait and see. June Har­vey, Drouin WHY not fol­low WA’s lead and charge graf­fiti van­dals $20,000, or give them two years’ jail? Di, Bayswa­ter North THE only thing miss­ing from the plan for the area un­der Skyrail is the graf­fiti. Geral­dine, Glad­stone Park NO, Bernard (50/50, 14/11), us­ing wind­mills in­stead of coal to gen­er­ate elec­tric­ity is akin to free­ing your­self of a two-pack a day smok­ing habit. You feel vastly bet­ter, you’re far health­ier, you have much more money, and you’re not poi­son­ing all around you. Michael, Hawthorn THE only Vic­to­ri­ans not feel­ing the hike in en­ergy bills are pris­on­ers — they don’t feel any of the ever-in­creas­ing prob­lems of hard­work­ing peo­ple. Ian Jones, Al­tona MEL­BOURNE: the most live­able city in the world, but don’t for­get to bring your own can­dles. Boots, Seaford FU­NERAL ad­ver­tise­ments for se­niors could go a step fur­ther and of­fer a com­pli­men­tary flat­pack cof­fin so you can put it to­gether while you wait. Tik, Wan­garatta JUST won­der­ing who the fed­eral leader of the Dual Cit­i­zen Party is? Big V, Al­tona IT ap­pears that our poor, pusil­lan­i­mous Vic­to­rian pub­lic ser­vants will need ac­cess to spe­cial­ist LGBTI coun­sel­lors to come to terms with the vote re­sult. There go a few more hours of work. Maybe they could at­tend a demon­stra­tion or riot in that time? John Wis­niowski, Macleod I’M cur­rently in a Chris­tian het­ero­sex­ual mar­riage. If the Yes vote gets up, I’m think­ing about re­fer­ring to my mar­riage as a Chris­tian het­ero­sex­ual union. Richard, Wan­tirna
