Vote out of char­ac­ter

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS OPINION -

LOOK­ING back on half a cen­tury as a news­pa­per jour­nal­ist, and hav­ing handled hun­dreds, no, thou­sands, of let­ters to the ed­i­tor, I re­call that the one that con­veyed the short­est and sharpest mes­sage, whether yea or nay, was the most ef­fec­tive. Well in this let­ter, the only one I can re­call hav­ing writ­ten, I will stick to that for­mula. This is the short­est I can man­age. As for sharp point­ed­ness dear reader, you must de­cide.

The sub­ject, not so much the ugly Bad­deram name, but the Sun­shine Coast coun­cil­lors’ 9-1 vote for the ridicu­lously un­suit­able plan to build some­thing so out of char­ac­ter with the Bud­erim we love. — Peter Richard­son
