"I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it."  Voltaire


Alan Jones lost his Mercdes; slippery Pete lost his job; you may be banned from reading classic bedtime stories to your grandchildren unless you are in tune with our times.

In these sensitive modern times, Snow White took refuge with seven vertically challenged men, Little Red Riding Hood, her grandma and the cross-dressing wolf set up an alternative household based on mutual respect and co-operation, Goldilocks was a rogue biologist who specialised in the study of anthropomorphic bears, the Frog Prince was not a prince at all but a middle-aged, balding real estate developer with plans to drain the pond, and the Emperor was not naked but merely endorsing a clothing optional lifestyle.

I'm going back out on the verandah now to sit in the sun and read another tree carcase.
