More sad news in Waitakere:

This week has seen yet another violent death with the murder of Arun Kumar during an attempted robbery at his dairy in Henderson on Tuesday morning. Adding to the sense of disbelief is the age of the two boys apprehended by police in relation to the killing; one was 13 years old, the other just 12.Our thoughts go out to all those impacted by this latest tradegy in our community.

A little bit of feminism ok, but not too much!

Finally, something to lighten the otherwise somber news for this week; John Gray, author of 'Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus' informs us that feminism risks ruining our marriages.

He comments that "the reason why there is so much divorce is that feminism promotes independence in women. I'm very happy for women to find greater independence, but when you go too far in that direction, then who's at home?" he asked.   

Phew! I'm glad we sorted that one out!
