SHORT & SWEET
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.
