17 Nov 2017: Heather’s Homily (Roy Moore Again) and Tweets

There are two things dominating the tweets today when it comes to politics, and it’s easy to guess what they are. One is the ongoing saga of the Mueller investigation. The latest news is that papers relating to Trump real estate deals and Russia have been subpoenaed. The former British spy who wrote the so-called “dodgy dossier” on Trump says that this is where they are likely to find... read more

15 Nov 2017: Heather’s Homily (Marriage Equality in Oz) and Tweets

12 Nov: Homily (Sick Leave) and Tweets

The New Zealand Breakers basketball team still haven’t lost a game this season and are therefore still on top of... read more

10 Nov: Homily (Winston Peters Again) and Tweets

I don’t know if there are any tweets about it because I haven’t looked, but a story in the Washington Post is causing a bit of a furore here. A USian living in NZ, Ben Mack, wrote a story for them called ‘How the far right is poisoning New Zealand‘. It’s incredibly ill-informed and quite maddening. The “far right” he’s talking about is Winston Peters, who... read more
