Commenting on the story: Funding call to repair ‘forgotten’ Falie
The sooner we have a state/national heritage lottery to fund worthwhile causes like this, the better. – John Moylan
Commenting on the story: SkyCity reaches agreement over money-laundering probe
I find it puzzling that a large corporation can “come to an agreement” in relation to multiple serious offences. This looks like selective justice that is not available to most ordinary people. – Colin MacDougall
Commenting on the story: City council on path to e-bike push
I support the principle of encouraging cycling, both by e-bike and normal cycles.
16 years ago I lived at Glandore and worked at Adelaide Uni and usually used my bicycle, except in the very worst weather. One problem then, and still, is the shortage of short term cycle parks or racks, which made it difficult to, say, stop at the Central Market on the way home to buy food and groceries. – David Inkster
Does it occur to any of these bike enthusiasts that people over 80 still need to visit the city and use footpaths? – Jean Cannon
Commenting on the opinion piece: The horrific double standards for women in the public eye
Fabulous article Ali. It seems after all these decades so much has not changed.
You’re so right, a male would never have had this treatment. I don’t watch Channel 9 at any time, and this is just another reason why. Keep up the good work, however I do miss you on 891. – Di Martin
Commenting on the story: Adelaide CBD office vacancies the nation’s highest
Aside from the continued and ongoing construction of newer office space, the increasing trend toward open-plan offices, hot-desking and flexible working mean less office space is needed for the same staff, while “rationalisation” and “centralisation” by national companies has seen movement away from Adelaide for years. – Tony Dawkins
