SHORT & SWEET

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - OPINION -

ED: The Pope calls for “open, trans­par­ent, sci­ence-based” re­port­ing of cli­mate risk (“Wake up to cli­mate dis­as­ter, says Pope”, 16/6). Is he also in favour of the same ap­proach to reli­gion? He could start with cre­ation v evo­lu­tion. STEVE: Kerri-Anne Ken­ner­ley sought and won much-needed $15 mil­lion state fund­ing for spinal re­search. It was a class act, spurred on by the loss of her hus­band from se­vere spinal in­juries (“When KAK am­bushed Premier”, 16/6). MARG: Thank you, Piers Akerman, for your heart­felt trib­ute to your friend, the late Bob Hawke (“Lar­rikin Hawke a big pic­ture pol­lie who sought to make a real dif­fer­ence”, 16/6). Bob Hawke, for all his drinking and wom­an­is­ing faults, was a man of the peo­ple whose like will prob­a­bly not been seen again. JOHNNY: When is our ju­di­cial sys­tem go­ing to get fair dinkum with criminals (“Crime lords trade illegal gun stashes for lighter sen­tences”, 16/6)? Fancy do­ing deals with them! WADE: All the M4 tun­nel will do is move the bot­tle­neck 5.5km down the road (“Dial M4 mirac­u­lous”, 16/6). SCOTT: M4 is bringing our great city into the 21st cen­tury at long last. Well done, one and all.
