The home country

Back in the home country (New Zealand), with a fair amount of regularity a media firestorm erupts over some tragic incident, normally involving a child’s death, and it is gradually transformed into Something that Must Make Maori as a Whole, and Especially Their Political Representatives, Look Deeply into Their Souls and Change. This time it’s a Wanganui drive-by shooting that killed a two-year-old. Greenie Eugenie has a fascinating post from the eye of the storm.

  1. Kia ora, Mike. Thanks for the honourable mention. I like the title of your blog – hopefully you keep going with this one! Well done on your library haul by the way. I’m hanging out for the Red Cross book sale in Palmerston North at the end of this month. 600,000 books, most of them going for 25 cents. YUMMY!
