It’s art, don’t knock it

Commenting on the story: “Phallic, hideous”: Unlucky $2m sculpture’s new Adelaide home

Why are the Adelaide City Council members always knocking the city?

Bright the public work of art to Adelaide, since it is donated to our art gallery.

The city desperately needs more public works of art, not just statues of the dead.

Public art gives colour to a city. The more the better. Maurice Shinnick

An appropriate site for the art work might be Wellington Square, North Adelaide, in the centre where the paths meet.

 Wellington Square does not have a monument and needs a focal point. – Garth Owen

I think the design is fine.  In my view it looks like a gothic version of a Gymea Lily. 

Not sure what all the fuss is about. – Helen MacDonald

Why the squeeze on SA Pathology?

Commenting on the story: Staff and customers to bear brunt in SA Pathology “hit list”

It should be easy to compare “efficiency” across pathology services by comparing flu statistics and time taken for critical analysis as metrics.

Given the deliberate and probably ideological withdrawal from public services by the new government, which incidentally was hidden from the public at the last election, any analysis should be carried out independently. – Paul Andre

It’s  interesting that what was Gribbles and has since had a couple of name changes is moving its test centre from Goodwood Rd to new laboratories  Export Park at Adelaide airport.

They must think that the expenditure on new facilities is worth it by introducing efficiencies.

SA Health should consider what their opposition is doing. Bill Hecker
