That front page is from February 2006.  What a difference 9 years has made.

John Howard and Peter Costello were running the show - Kim Beasley was the opposition leader.

Work didn't start on creating Twitter until March 2006.   There was no "social media" to distort or shape our attitudes and responses to issues.

There's no doubt the two drug felons were vastly changed men thanks to their time in gaol.   But I think our country and its attitudes  changed tremendously during that time too.  The Gillard years set a very low standard for integrity - Peter Slipper and Craig Thomson are two startling cases in point.  

I'd love to hear from you about changes you see in our country's character over the past decade or so.
