The Editor doesn’t moderate this blog,  3 volunteers do, they are very lenient to provide you a free speech space but if it’s just deranged abuse or putting words in bloggers mouths to have a pointless argument, we don’t bother publishing.

EDITORS NOTE: – By the way, here’s a list of shit that will get your comment dumped. Sexist language, homophobic language, racist language, anti-muslim hate, transphobic language, Chemtrails, 9/11 truthers, Qanon lunacy, climate deniers, anti-fluoride fanatics, anti-vaxxer lunatics, 5G conspiracy theories, the virus is a bioweapon, some weird bullshit about the UN taking over the world  and ANYONE that links to fucking infowar.


  1. Some tv clips that stand out.
    This from Parks and Recreation tv Session 2 episode 12. This is a great take-off on how grifter politicians and leaders and ‘yellow press’ tabloids play with people and destroy their credibility. Leslie comes out on top though!
    “Christmas Scandal” (season 2, episode 12)
    The show hit its stride in the second season, which started to fill out the strange world of Pawnee, a place where the populace have good hearts but base instincts. ! In “Christmas Scandal,” the local press turns on Leslie, using innuendo and out-of-context photos to connect her to a disgraced councilman’s sordid personal life. This wouldn’t be the last time that the town’s sensationalist media machine would try to grind her up, nor would it be the last time the Pawnee public would choose to believe the worst. Yet what makes this such a heartwarming holiday episode is that Leslie keeps facing up to a hostile crowd, believing that since she didn’t do anything wrong, she’ll eventually be vindicated. Meanwhile, back at the office, her co-workers get their first real experience of what the parks department would be like if it had to function without its inimitable deputy director. Contrary to Ron’s belief that civil service is a cushy, do-nothing gig, he and Leslie’s colleagues come to understand that she’s actually a dynamo, working overtime behind the scenes to keep the town running.
    Christmas Scandal
    Leslie is falsely accused of having sexual relations with a sleazy Pawnee councilman. Meanwhile, the rest of the office takes on Leslie’s work while she deals with the scandal, and officer Dave has more surprising news for Leslie.

  2. Farah Hancock at RNZ – RadioNZ is the name of the data journalist who has been handling the covid reports. And we thank that person for the continual work giving reliable, accessible information.

    Latest news is that 38% of registered infections is from reinfection.
    The figures per day are dropping well and now a bit over 1,300.
    And we need to remember that Covid19 is a continuing, evolving story so we need to keep watching out for the next creepy wave.
