Why 'Excellence' should be at the top of our national agenda

[Douglas Kruger] Oprah said that the best answer to racism was personal excellence. The concept can be taken even further. Personal excellence is the solution to a great many things, one of which is the catastrophically damaging labour unrest currently choking our economy into negative growth.

Housing for miners should provide jobs too

[Paddy Hartdegen] I fail to understand why it should take the deaths of 44 people - and a year of mourning for the lost loved-ones - to get someone to do something about housing in an area that should be awash with money.
