A group of twenty year olds playing zero point. Now my back is hurting like fuck. I am really old (and gay).

Fair reporting but interpreted from a definite point of view

"Singapore has executed drug offenders from Malaysia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nigeria, Ghana, the Netherlands, Britain and Portugal. From that perspective, why, then, should an Australian citizen, or an Australian government, believe themselves entitled to special pleadings?"

"Principled and passionate protest by Australians against the death penalty is important. Singapore may yet listen. But excitable language about diplomatic or economic retribution smacks of populist posturing. It could do more harm than good."

Finally some Aussies have decided to write sensibly and fairly regarding Nguyen's condemnation by the Singapore government.
