Priorities

SMH July 3:

“THE Department of Juvenile Justice will remove all six of the state’s Aboriginal program support officers, despite a report that recommends raising the status of the positions.”

SMH July 3:

“Prime Minister John Howard has urged the Ten Network to cancel the controversial reality television show Big Brother.”

No prizes for guessing which of these stories is receiving most national and media attention.

I’m all for axing Big Brother though. Not on grounds of taste and decency, just because it’s mindless crap.
