There are better things to do

A sense of despondency prevails, little improved by the perverse pleasure of tragic irony elicited by the ongoing urban renewal saga.

Now we are told that approval has been given to move the Kariong Post Office to a pub next to the planned High School at Mt. Penang, on the opposite side of the busy highway from the suburb of Kariong, against the wishes of the community, and in the neighbouring suburb of Somersby.

The licensee of the pub is the president of the Chamber of Commerce.

I'm sure its all for the best though. Its just a shame we can't find a new way of doing business. One that would allow some room for the ideas that are being being embraced elsewhere.
