Olive Rd looks like a war zone this morning .....
Unpublished

from White Rd to the Gordon Hwy. A third world culture. And all of the streets feeding into Olive Rd. Fifty years of "social engineering" has made a great difference in these neighborhoods. Some of us remember Olive Rd. when the evil Anglo's lived, worked, raised families, worshiped and went to school.

OC......good call last night.

OC......good call last night. Wonder if the two are related. A "runs in the family" kind of thing?

If they can't get the right guy in the report I guess it's way too much to ask that they dig deep enough to find out why he did it.

Mistakes are gonna happen from time to time.

The difference between the AC and us.
We get to make most of our mistakes in private, or edit them later.
The AC publishes theirs and a 100k see it in minutes.

Sean M.
does the AC have an Email or URL to report mistakes?
I looked for about 5 mins last night and kept missing it.
