    May you be well
    May you be happy
    May you live your life with ease.

    Perhaps the leaders and lobbyists for the NRA should be made to meet with the families of those killed in these massacres? Or have to attend the autopsies?

    It is @Shoshin - and it affirms a lot of the experiences I've had over the years.

    Unfortunately with the apparent increase in mental illness and the gun culture so prolific in the US, I can't see things getting better any time soon.

    We'll just keep reading about this stuff and shaking our heads in bewilderment.

    Blimey that was quick...a courier has just delivered my new Aussie passport ...I only took the application in last Tuesday morning at 10.30am,..it's now Monday morning 10.18am...

    Mind you the very first Aussie passport I got (back in the mid seventies in Sydney) only took 2 hours from start(filling out the application then going out for a cup of tea) to finish ( returning to the office to pick it up)

    The staff in the Australian passport department must know I'm a VIP ... (Very Impatient Person) :winky:

    Nice one!

    I recall being shocked at the speed of bureaucracy in NZ when I lived there.

    Walked in to a bank and came out fifteen minutes later with a bank account, an eftpos card and the PIN for it! In Australia, the US or UK this whole process would take a week or two.

    My ex-wife called up the IRD(?) to change her surname with the expectation that she'd need to send in a marriage certificate to prove it but no, they just updated it over the phone!
