a small tribute...

With the recent devastation sweeping across Victoria at the moment, it seems hard to post as normal.  
Here is a link to an interesting article titled, 'Media Circus Upsets Bushfire Survivors'.
It acknowledges both sides to the argument around media and privacy; that is the role that the Media plays in allowing people to express their stories, and the distress this excessive and intrusive coverage can cause those involved.

Having said that, here ironically is a positive commendation of the ABC's recent news broadcasts, many of which have been worthy to the cause.  And along with that, a small suggestion to urge readers to donate to the red cross foundation.
