The Children Of Migrants, Doing Fine? By Richard Miller

     That is the argument, wasn’t is, that the assimilationists always gave, that everything would come out in the wash, or in the salad mix, or whatever cute metaphor was employed:
  https://www.amren.com/news/2019/09/report-migrants-children-are-more-likely-to-commit-crimes-than-parents/
  https://voiceofeurope.com/2019/09/report-migrants-children-are-more-likely-to-commit-crimes-than-parents/

“A recent study conducted by Statistic Norway has revealed that the children of immigrants commit more crimes than their parents – first-generation immigrants – do, suggesting that the notion of integration is merely a fantasy. Figures from the study showed that Norwegian-born men with Somali family background in the age group 15 to 35 were 4.6 times more likely to have committed a violent crime. Furthermore, men in the same age group with Iraqi backgrounds were 4 times more likely to have committed a violent crime. And again, the same pattern can be seen in Moroccan Norwegians (3.2), Turkish Norwegians (2.8), and Pakistani Norwegians (2.4). For members in Norway’s rightist Progress Party, these figures clearly indicate that proper integration is not taking place and that the Norwegian government should take more action and “make more demands” to address the problem.  Sigmund Book Mohn of Statistics Norway told the Swedish newspaper Aftenposten, “There are significantly higher rates among immigrants for certain types of offenses, such as mistreatment in close relationships. And significantly lower for other types, such as embezzlement.” Jon Helgheim, the Progress Party’s integration spokesman said that this essentially means that “integration doesn’t happen automatically over time”. “From 2015-2017, a total of 443 people were charged with “mistreatment in close relationships”, including domestic violence. Of those 443 individuals charged, 185 of them were immigrants. This clearly points to significant over-representation.

Liberals Attack! By Ian Wilson LL.B

     It all began with the good old politically correct New York Times, publishing a hit piece 2.0 claiming that US Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted a female as a student. The allegations were first raised against The Kav by others,  when he was being assessed for fitness to serve on the bench, but these allegations proved to be groundless. Anyway, the NYT article’s ink had hardly dried of its 1s and 0s on the net, when every Leftist and their dog Marx, were barking for The Kav to be impeached. Having a conservative judge worries the Left as much as a conservative president. Only problem was that this story too began to fall apart, as the alleged victim did not remember the assault, and does not want to talk to the media. Still, the NYT went ahead with the false news story, and we can quote President Trump on that description.

“Headlined “Brett Kavanaugh Fit In With the Privileged Kids. She Did Not,” the story was primarily about Deborah Ramirez, a Connecticut woman who alleged that Kavanaugh, as a freshman at Yale in 1983, had pulled down his pants and thrust his penis at her. Kavanaugh has denied those claims. Yet the authors said they’d uncovered a similar story involving Kavanaugh at another freshman-year party, where he allegedly exposed himself and friends pushed his penis into the hands of a female student. The story said former classmate Max Stier reported the incident to the FBI and senators as Kavanaugh’s nomination was being discussed, but the story said Stier would not discuss it with the authors. Kavanaugh would not comment on the story, a court spokeswoman said Monday. After the story was posted online but before it was in the print edition, the Times revised the story to add that the book reported that the woman supposedly involved in the incident declined to be interviewed, and that her friends say she doesn’t recall the incident. While an editor’s note pointed out the revision, it did not say why those facts had been left out in the first place. A Times spokeswoman said no one was available for an interview on Monday. The Times’ deputy editorial page editor, James Dao, posted answers to readers’ question on the newspaper’s website Monday evening but did not address this issue. The failure to initially report that the woman did not remember the alleged incident “is one of the worst cases of journalistic malpractice in recent memory,” John McCormack wrote in the conservative magazine National Review. The Washington Post, detailing its own decision on the story, called into question the Times’ decision to run with the accusation in the first place. The Post said that last year it had independently confirmed that lawmakers and authorities knew of the second accusation against Kavanaugh, but did not write about it because the woman involved would not comment and the alleged witnesses were not identified.

Tonga ready to fight over Israel Folau By Brent Read

     Tongan officials have armed themselves with legal advice that suggests the NRL is powerless to prevent them selecting Israel Folau to make a shock return to rugby league in Test matches against Great Britain and Australia next month. Folau, sacked by Rugby Australia earlier this year after a social media post declaring gays were destined to go to hell unless they repented, is understood to have spoken to his legal team in Melbourne over his ability to turn out for the Tongan rugby league side. The NRL was scrambling on Monday night to block Folau’s comeback after being caught off guard by a press release from the Tongan National Rugby League suggesting Folau and his brother John were ready to turn out for the Tongan national team, the Mate Ma’a. In a statement released through social media, TNRL­ chairman George Koloamatangi said the Folau brothers were set to play against Great Britain on October 26 and Australia one week later at Eden Park in Auckland. The statement also said neither player was available for the World Cup 9s tournament to be played in Sydney on October 19 because the event was controlled by the NRL. Australian Rugby League Commission chairman Peter Beattie and NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg have already made it clear Folau is not welcome back. Remarkably, both men are on the Rugby League International Federation and were unaware of Folau’s planned return.

Softbois of the World Unite, You Have Nothing to Lose but Your Brains! By John Steele

     Softbois, or spelling it out “Soft Boys,” (closely related to “Soy Boys”) is what many boys, I don’t call them men, are today, the product of a feminist society and testosterone destroying chemicals, and emasculated lifestyles.  Here the Left can explain it, since they helped create it:
  https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2019/sep/05/softboi-what-is-it-instagram-q-and-a

“There’s a softboi spectrum. At one end, it’s just anyone who has any unique or alternative interests that make them feel superior to other people. At the other end is quite hardcore emotionally manipulative men who use these interests to really mess about with women or men. But there’s so many people in between on the spectrum so there’s no one real definition. What are three terms you’d use to describe a softboi? Alternative. Superiority complex. Emotionally exploitative. You can assign those qualities to a lot of people, but you’re saying it’s the alternativeness that gives the bois their soft edge? Yeah, exactly. Softbois have alternative interests and come across like they’re being very open about their emotions, which is a really good thing for men to do. But it then twists into “and you should therefore sleep with me because of this”. Another common thing with softbois is that they turn quite emotionally messed up when they get rejected. For example: one guy [featured on the account] messaged a girl on Tinder saying “don’t be sad life is wonderful”, and when she didn’t reply he wrote “lol you must be one of those emotionally distraught women who hasn’t figured out their purpose yet”.

Now, Normalised Paedophilia By Mrs Vera West

     I have been predicting for some time now that the next big thing of the progressives would be to deconstruct, and normalise paedophilia, and there have been moves in the media to do so, careful ones, but that was how it was done in the gender agenda in the early 1960s. As usual, the universities are moving on this one:
  https://summit.news/2019/09/15/ohio-college-normalizes-pedophilia-as-a-sexual-orientation/

“San Diego State University is teaching students that pedophilia could merely be considered to be an alternative “sexual orientation.” “An actual topic we discussed in class today at a State University after watching an 8-minute Vice News video showcasing self-identified pedophiles. This is going to be mainstreamed,” tweeted Alex Mazzara. The photo shows a presentation slide entitled ‘Pedophilia as a Sexual Orientation’. It suggests that embracing pedophilia as an alternative sexual orientation could be part of the “acceptance of diverse sexual identities.” The VICE video showcasing pedophiles may well have been their platforming of Todd Nickerson, a self-confessed pedophile. VICE’s article about Nickerson sympathetically portrayed him, an individual who openly admits wanting to molest children, as a victim of right-wing “vigilantes”. Conservatives have been warning for years that the ultimate endgame of every fetish, gender identity and sexuality being not merely tolerated but endorsed would eventually be the mainstreaming of pedophilia.”

Would She Lie to You? By Paul Walker

     It reminds me of the comedy game show, Would I Lie to You … after the failure of banning guns in New Zealand, with few people willing to turn over their unregistered weapons, we have the political career of Jacinda Ardern under question because of this:
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7458607/New-Zealand-Prime-Minister-Jacinda-Ardern-forced-resign-sexual-assault-scandal.html?ico=pushly-notifcation-small
  https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12267036

“A sexual assault allegation that rocked the New Zealand Labour party has tarnished Jacinda Ardern's reputation and led to speculation that she could be forced to quit as prime minister. A male Labour party staffer resigned after he was accused of assaulting a 19-year-old female volunteer and harassing other party members. The teenager told The Spinoff that she was pinned down and sexually assaulted by the man in 2018. Labour president Nigel Haworth also quit over the party's handling of the investigation. Ms Ardern said she was not aware of the sexual assault claim until it was published in the media - but opposition leader Simon Bridges has claimed she knew about it earlier than that. 'I think she knew. All very well, it may be that the president is in the wrong, but when you think about this, the prime minister, if you stand back and look at it, is ducking and diving accountability,' he told Newshub. You have this in the media and indeed her being interviewed about alleged sexual assaults for several weeks now... I think she knew and she is saying she didn't.' Mr Bridges said Mr Haworth was the 'fall guy' for Ms Ardern, and claimed the prime minister had 'done the least possible every step of the way - it's just wrong'. Political commentator Duncan Garner said Ms Ardern could be forced to stand down as prime minister. 'Ms Ardern has squandered a massive lead - like a racing car driver a lap ahead crashing into the side wall. I simply can't say with certainty if Ms Ardern is going to walk away from this mass pile up,' he wrote for Newshub. 'I can't rule out that she may be forced to resign as prime minister.'

Female Hypergamy: Behind Feminism By Mrs Vera West

     We can still find pieces on YouTube, amazingly, on female hypergamy, the primal instinct for women to strive to achieve more alpha mates, and providers. Even those  having high paying jobs, if heterosexual, seek this, unless constrained by Christian morality of some moral code. Go back to the jungle, which is what modern nihilist society is, and that what one gets, well documented in a book the Left hate intensely, Sexual Utopia in Power: the Feminist Revolt Against Civilization, by F. Roger Devlin (Counter-currents, 2015). Jordan Peterson has an excellent video on this topic too:
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N7LN14IpVy0

     Lots of conservative, and even libersal ladies discuss the same thing, so anyone thinking that the topic can be put off limits by rattling on about “anti-women” well, just forget it. The girls tell you to do so, so obey! It is interesting to get the perspective of young Black women on the horrible sexual market place that the feminist regime, and the 1960s “liberation” has produced:

Abortion is Fine, but Nationalism (for the West) is Evil! By Chris Knight

     There is internet controversy at present over the case of a cheerleader who brutally killed her baby, walking free:
  https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/9926161/cheerleader-brooke-skylar-richardson-baby-death-walks-free-apology/

“THE cheerleader who buried her unwanted baby in her garden was slammed by a judge as she walked free from court on Friday. Brooke Skylar Richardson, from Ohio, US, had been accused of smashing her newborn's skull with a rock days after her prom when she was aged 18. But on Thursday, she was cleared of aggravated murder, involuntary manslaughter and child endangerment – only being found guilty of gross abuse of a corpse. During sentencing, Judge Donald Oda slammed Richardson for poor choices which may have resulted in the stillbirth of the baby, who she named Annabelle. “I believe if you had made different decisions, Annabelle would still be here,” the judge said. “I think that your choices before birth, during birth and after birth show a grotesque disregard for life.” Judge Donald Oda sentenced Richardson, now 20, to seven days in jail for the corpse abuse charge, but she was credited for time already served. She will instead serve three years of probation – but if she violates this, she can be locked up for up to a year in jail.”

When PC Ideologies Clash By Richard Miller

“Islamic primary schools across the Netherlands have distributed anti-LGBT literature which claims Allah destroyed an entire people based on their homosexuality. The material is part of the sex education in Islamic schools and comes from the book Help! I am Growing Up released by the Islamic organisation ISBO for 44 schools across the Netherlands, Nederlandse Omroep Stichting reports. When asked about the material the Education Inspectorate told the broadcaster, “With regard to teaching materials, the inspectorate always looks at how this is applied in the context. These examples do not in themselves give cause to assume that legal limits are being exceeded.”

Japan, Asia and Same Sex Marriage By Mrs Vera West

     Japan may be moving towards the legalisation of same sex marriage, if a recent opinion poll is any gauge of things:
  https://english.kyodonews.net/news/2019/09/8cd410ef9806-70-of-married-women-in-japan-support-same-sex-marriage.html
  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recognition_of_same-sex_unions_in_Japan

“Almost 70 percent of married women in Japan believe that same-sex marriage should be legalized in the country, a government survey of around 6,000 married women showed Friday. Among those in their 30s or younger, roughly 90 percent supported the legalization of same-sex marriage, according to the survey conducted last year by the National Institute of Population and Social Security Research. The survey has been conducted every five years since 1993 to collect data on Japanese households, including the distribution of chores. Questions on same-sex couples were added for the first-time last year.”

Degenerate Universities By Mrs Vera West

     Things have not gone this far yet on most Australian campuses, but they are on the way to this, a kind of decadent athletics of sorts:
  https://www.thecollegefix.com/penis-ring-toss-lubricant-taste-tests-featured-at-public-universitys-sex-ed-carnival/

“A penis ring toss, vagina bean bag toss, and lubricant taste tests were just a few of the activities students at George Mason University took part in Tuesday night at a “Consent Carnival” hosted by the Student Support and Advocacy Center. The vagina bean bag toss boasted giant inflatable lips that served to mimic a “vagina,” and students could throw large pink bean bags into it. The game doubled as an educational display, informing students on flyers that “not all people with vaginas are women.” “Genitalia is not an indicator of gender and it can be harmful to assume so,” the display added. Other information provided included the number of nerve endings on the clitoris (8,000), how the labia comes in different colors (“light pink to dark brown”), and the fact that the vagina is self cleaning. As for the penis ring toss, the educational component to that game was that the eight or so three-foot-high penis inflatables were surrounded by signs on how to correctly use a condom, among other information. Meanwhile there was popcorn and candy for students to nibble on. They were also offered tastings of various lubricants. The flavors included cupcake, watermelon and green apple. Additional stations at the carnival included the “gender unicorn” booth, which helped teach students how to properly react to friends coming out as LGBTQ. There was also an “affirmative consent kissing booth” and a “you mustache for consent” table that sought to teach students how to get verbal consent before and as they engage in sexual activity. “Condom balloon pop” and “don’t touch my hair” booths were also offered to the crowd, but many students flocked to the face painter and snowcone machine, which appeared to be the biggest hits at the event. (The face painter told The Fix students were not asking for sexually explicit images.) And no carnival would be complete without a balloon artist.

The Rising Fight Against Porn By Mrs Vera West

     Cheer up lads, the fight is grim and it is easy to lose spirit, and hope that a large rock flung towards earth will finish everything off, but there is always hope. See, the state of Arizona is citing porn as public health risk, and isn’t it, a kind of plague sweeping throughout the land?
  https://www.foxnews.com/health/arizona-follows-lead-of-other-states-in-calling-pornography-a-public-health-crisis?

“Arizona lawmakers last week approved a resolution calling for efforts to prevent children from being exposed to pornography online, a move similar to those of legislative bodies in at least 15 other states that are calling adult sexual content a public health crisis. "It is an epidemic in our society, and this makes a statement that we have a problem," said Arizona state Sen. Sylvia Allen, a Republican whose chamber approved the resolution last Monday. She blamed pornography for contributing to a number of societal issues, such as violence against women, sexual activity among teens and unintended pregnancies. The resolution is non-binding but could signal future action. Many of the resolutions put forward are based on a model written by anti-porn group the National Center on Sexual Exploitation. Mark Kernes, a senior editor at the trade publication Adult Video News media network, called porn harmless entertainment meant for adults. He said linking sexual adult content with social problems is “complete fear-mongering.” Others say the resolutions could create a risk for LGBTQ groups and leave out calls for better sex education for teenagers. "If you stub your toe, that might be something you can't solve yourself, but that doesn't make it a public health issue," said Emily Rothman, a professor of community health sciences at Boston University.”

Enforced Inceldom and Malignant Hypergamy By Mrs Vera West

     As the New York Times has recently discussed, the West is facing a profound spiritual crisis where high suicides and a drug epidemic, linked with crime and social breakdown, are indicators of vast social anomie and alienation. This is especially impacting upon men who have had their traditional roles undermined. And it goes so deep that even sexual practices have become reduced to a minimum, or are non-existent for some men, the incels, involuntary celibates. The Dissent Right sites like to slam these young men, but sober consideration would reveal that many Middle Eastern terrorists also fall into this category, and having nothing left to lose, or no hope of gain, are willing to embrace death, something the comfortable internet writers would shiver at the thought of, from the safety of their mom’s basements.
  https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/07/opinion/sunday/the-age-of-american-despair.html

     Once, men who were not alphas, but ordinary blokes, could hope to get some reasonable woman, but now, empowered females are fully pursuing hypergamy, seeking higher level mates, meaning that a large segment of the male population will miss out on having a partner. This is discussed in a book by F. Roger Devlin, Sexual Utopia in Power, (2015), and some recent comments have been made at Affirmative Right.com:

Now, Feminist Dragonflies By Mrs Vera West

     See, nature itself embodies feminist principles. Just ask the dragonflies:
  https://thewildchild.co.za/female-dragonflies-fake-their-death-to-avoid-males/?fbclid=IwAR0h9cP3KZHB-ua8PCzFyhgOZA-3kd8FLYK09odYdbXN33OjB51LWXYEyCI 
  https://www.nationalgeographic.com/news/2017/05/death-dragonflies-switzerland-mating-sex/

“Everyone has those nights when their significant other comes to bed and — for one reason or another — they decide to feign sleep to avoid talking or …doing other stuff. Well, female dragonflies take this kind of sneaky rejection to the next level — faking their own deaths to avoid having interact with aggressive males. Scientists recently captured this phenomenon on video for the first time while observing moorland hawker dragonflies in the Swiss Alps. In the newly released footage, the female is seen freezing mid-air and plummeting to the ground, where she lies motionless until the male leaves. (When researchers approached the females, they immediately flew away — showing they remain alert throughout the fake death.) This behavior, which has been previously observed in five other species, is called ‘death feigning’. It’s believed to have developed as a survival tactic, since female dragonflies often risk injury or death when coerced into mating. “In a lot of dragonflies, males try to seize the female with or without consent,” Rassim Khelifa, a biologist who recently published a study on the phenomenon, told National Geographic. “The fittest — that is the fastest, most powerful male — is usually the one who mates.” Male dragonflies often pounce on their female victims as they bask in the sun by the water. After a female has laid eggs once, Khelifa found, she’s pretty much met her quota for male interaction. And that’s when she starts playing dead. It’s apparently an effective escape method, since more than 60% of the females who employed it successfully deceived their male pursuers — and every female who didn’t was intercepted. Other methods used by female dragonflies to avoid mating include laying their eggs in dense vegetation and avoiding areas heavily populated by males.”

Message from the Father to the Bride: Pachelbel’s Canon in D Major and Manly Virtue By Paul Walker

     I saw the following clip mentioned here:
  https://vdare.com/articles/derb-s-august-diary-pachelbel-and-nepalese-in-japan-derb-in-china-dentists-and-dieticians-etc-11-items

     The clip is surprisingly moving, which is a Japanese music advertisement based upon Pachelbel’s Canon in D Major, a simple, but haunting bitter sweet piece dating perhaps from 1680. The music was forgotten for centuries then received a revival in the 20th century, and today is popular at both weddings and funerals. It was played as I walked with my bride from the altar. Everyone learning  the piano has to tackle it at some point, and it is not hard to play; beauty in simplicity. As for the video, many people shed tears seeing it. It is characteristically Japanese, dealing with story of a father raising a daughter, with the death of his wife, and music being the common link, a metaphor for their life. The story involves the father delivering a message to his daughter at her wedding by playing Canon himself, only he was no musician, and learnt the piece especially for the wedding, as an act of will. As he struggles to play, the life story unfolds, with flashback scenes. The struggle to play is a symbol of the life struggle that he has endured, and his message by going through the ordeal of learning to play himself, is that she will need to continue the struggle that she to went through in learning to play as a child, in the road ahead of her.

How Low Can it Go! University Entrance Scores Crash in the Name of Gender Diversity! By Mrs Vera West and “Jammers” Reed

     Here you have two for the price of one! And, speaking of bargains, how good is it that our amazing universities are willing to lower entrance scores to allow the most sacred of all minorities, namely women, to get into the boy’s club of STEM! Fantastic! Look, we will even report this quoting from Left wing source, which has put halos over our heads:
  https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/aug/29/university-makes-10-point-entry-score-adjustment-for-female-applicants

“The University of Technology Sydney is trying to encourage more young women to study engineering, computing and construction degrees by adjusting year 12 entry scores for female applicants. The university has received approval from the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board to make a 10-point adjustment to the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank of female students applying for those degrees for the 2020 academic year. The university hopes it will help address gender imbalances in those male-dominated industries. UTS Women in Engineering and IT director Arti Agarwal insisted the move would not lower standards. “We’re not taking in underperforming students or doing tokenism here,” she told Guardian Australia. “Nobody is getting a free pass … They all have to do all the degree requirements [and] internships.” Agarwal said the move was part of the university’s 30-year effort to improve gender equity in engineering, which includes primary school and high school outreach programs and mentoring for female engineers. “We looked at the performance of Atar and the performance of [grade point average] so a lower Atar did not mean they would get a lower GPA. A higher Atar did not mean they were best in the class,” Agarwal said. She noted a large number of engineering students gained entrance into the undergraduate degree through other pathways, which often were lower than the year 12 Atar minimum score. Agarwal said previously that, on average, females received 4-8% of UTS offers to study mechanical engineering/mechatronics. The university expects the score adjustment will increase female study offers to about 20%.

It Can Happen Here Too! By Mrs Vera West

     A South African doctor told a pregnant woman that the foetus is human and that abortion therefore would kill it. He gets sacked. It could happen here in Australia just as easily. But, if the doctor sang the praises of abortion, why, nothing would happen. That is business as usual:
  https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/doctor-forbidden-to-practice-medicine-after-telling-patient-a-fetus-is-a-human

“August 30, 2019 (Society for the Protection of Unborn Children) — A South African doctor is facing charges of unprofessional conduct after telling a woman scientific facts about unborn children. According to Sowetan Live, Jacques de Vos allegedly told a patient that "a foetus is a human" and claimed that abortion kills a human. After de Vos stated these scientific facts, his employment was terminated and he was prohibited from practising medicine. De Vos is now facing four charges of unprofessional conduct from the Health Professions Council of South Africa at an inquiry which has commenced this week. According to the report, de Vos allegedly "infringed" the patient's "autonomy with his anti-abortion utterances." "Based On Ideology, Not Scientific Fact" SPUC Education and Research Director, Dr Anthony McCarthy described the charges as "based on ideology, not scientific fact." Dr McCarthy said: "From a scientific point of view, the question of when a new human life begins is relatively uncontroversial. Human life begins at fertilisation as a single cell. Conception marks a change from cells produced by the father and mother, to a cell with a complete human genome that constitutes a new human being." He continued: "The unborn life in the womb is undoubtedly human, and the evidence for this is overwhelming. As the parents are human — belonging to the species Homo sapiens — and the embryo is oriented to growing up just like them, the new living being is also human. That new life is obviously both very young and very small, but is no less human than we are now. "From a scientific and medical standpoint, the facts stated by Jacques de Vos are undoubtedly true."

Attack of the Astonishing, the Amazing, Meth Zombies! By John Steele

     There, I said that the long-awaited zombie apocalypse was happening, but nobody believed me, even in the gun shop!
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7424545/Inside-Queensland-town-seen-350-cent-rise-crime.html?ico=pushly-notifcation-small

“A once quiet town in rural Queensland has become a haven for criminals - and local residents claim a devastating ice epidemic is to blame. Finch Hatton – a sleepy town in the Mackay Region – has seen a 350 per cent spike in crime in the past six years. Residents are even more on edge after a number of businesses were targeted by thieves, Finch Hatton General Store manager Ashley Jones told Daily Mail Australia. There has been an increase in the number of drug-related arrests in the Finch Hatton division since 2003, Queensland Crime Statistics show. There were 43 drug-related arrests made last year alone - the highest arrest rate in 16 years. Drug offences made up about one-third of all offences in 2018. However, Mackay Crime Prevention Unit Sergeant Nigel Dalton said the increase was due to police takin a more proactive approach rather than an increase in drug-use. 'From the drug detectives' point of view, it's business as usual.'”

Why Punish the Weapon? By John Steele
