Australian Outtackiness

From THE GUARDIAN:

A 20-metre neon cross is to be erected in Australia’s outback, with the local community embarking on an ambitious million-dollar fundraising drive to see it built. Acclaimed photographer Ken Duncan is one of the driving forces behind the project, which will serve as a place for people to pray. The cross will be built about 250km from Alice Springs in the Northern Territory, at a place known as Hat Hill, between the communities of Papunya and Haasts Bluff.

The estimated cost of the project is $1.2m.

Those poor Aborigines. Haven’t they suffered enough at the hands of the white man? This is only going to drive more of them to drink.
