Kindness of strangers lost on tribe


The news I'd been reading on the plane home just after Easter was mostly of broadcaster Alan Jones and the media watchdog's findings on his contributions to enlightenment during the Cronulla riots. Jones' reflexes on air were not unlike those of the lithe young fellow next me on the plane: assertive and territorial as his biceps shoved me off the armrests during the flight and his person shoved me out of way as soon as we landed. A "power of one" he may be, but Jones also makes a powerful appeal to the tribal in all of us - Morag Fraser
