THE LETTER OF THE YEAR
I read the newspaper quite intensively and always peruse the letters and comment offered by readers. Yesterday’s (10/9/20180 ‘Letters’ in the NT News included the one reproduced below. For mine, a fellow resident of an older Darwin suburb and a person who has lived in the city, it is the ‘Letter of the year’.
Often letters are gripes. Others are exhortations. There are occasional appreciations. This letter from ‘Ed’ of ‘Jingili’ (one of Darwin’s older Northern Suburbs) is one of a kind. It is so inoffensively written, so full of observation and and so true.
