Bogan Breakout



Driving across from Goondiwindi to St George yesterday afternoon, I came across the indigenous landmark at Weengallon.Since the last time I came through, some bogan has expressed his bigotry on the stone.

It reminded me of the destruction of the Kalkadoon monument - using explosives - near Cloncurry - when I lived in Mt Isa in the nineties.

Racial bigotry is still alive and well.

But there's sunshine breaking through. The principal of a school about 100kms from this site is Aboriginal.

I wonder whether the bogan - if local - would enrol his kids at that school.

Fascinating thought......

Probably a new age city artist "tag" and couldn't find a wall or a train nearby.....doubt if he or she has children.
