Goodnight from Sydney

That's it for today!

Last night my final post contained a fine example of how NOT to get your message across to your target audience. Tonight, I will finish with one of my all time favourites. This is the response to a letter sent to the Premier of New South Wales, asking for funds to restore the grave of Australian poet Henry Lawson.

"As the matter you have raised primarily concerns the administration of the Minister for Rural Affairs, Minister for Local Government, Minister for Emergency Services and Minister Assisting the Minister for Natural Resources (Lands), the Hon A. B. Kelly, MLC, and the Minister for Juvenile Justice, Minister for Western Sydney and Minister Assisting the Minister for Infrastructure and Planning (Planning Administration), the Honourable D. Beamer MP, the Premier has arranged to bring your approach to the Ministers' attention".

When I start to understand the above - then I will start to worry!

Wherever you may be - be safe
