    There is a road between my home and the clinic, where I work. It is a long, straight and has only a single lane each way. It's a fast road, with no traffic lights and has a 90 km speed limit. As you can imagine, one slow car ruins the show for everyone behind and on this day...

    Dear Adam Goodes I am sick of this saga.

    I was at the West Coast/Sydney game on the weekend. No I didn't boo you. But I can sympathize with those that have. Not on a racial level. I take no issue with you being Indigenous. I do take issue with your self righteousness and your arrogance and your ignorance. I'm sorry...
