Ups and downs of life

North Taranaki Midweek - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS - KATH BROWN OPIN­ION

THUMBS UP

TO: The Bulls. It’s a no-brainer this week. Apart from the win last Fri­day, I re­ally like the way the team kept fans and foes alike in sus­pense about the out­come. It added so much to the game. Of course, by the time most of you have read this, the shield could be gone. Just kid­ding.

TO: Oa¯kura Beach Car­ni­val re­turn­ing. This is al­ways a great way to spend New Year’s Day and the com­bi­na­tion of stalls and en­ter­tain­ment should add to the ex­cite­ment.

TO: A fi­nal de­ci­sion be­ing made on who will govern the coun­try. Most of us are sick to the back teeth of this elec­tion and who will and who won’t.

THUMBS DOWN

TO: Those US id­iots who chanted out­side McDon­alds out­lets (I refuse to call them restau­rants be­cause what they sell barely qual­i­fies as food) about a lack of a par­tic­u­lar sauce. Ob­vi­ously a far more im­por­tant is­sue than mad peo­ple in their coun­try hav­ing ac­cess to au­to­matic weapons.

TO: Re­al­ity wed­ding shows that show too much re­al­ity. What­ever hap­pened to dis­cre­tion? Oh that’s right, so­cial me­dia did.
