You Don't Know Bennie?

By 'Mean' Mike Duffau, published on Apr 11, 2008

... around the boxing game and he's a personable guy. They don't try to compare myself with him because I'm not that kind of guy anyway.

Have you ever been compared to someone like him before?

I was compared to Angelo Dundee. You know he did that movie with the guy from Australia, Cinderella Man. He was sick at this time and he wanted to know if I'd be interested in taking his place and I said, "Yeah I'd do it, why not." I guess he pulled himself together and he did it.

By aussiekeith, published on Mar 15, 2008

Essay from Keith Rankin. Subject Youth Suicide is it out of control and if so why?

Intro Section.

Suicide is the second highest cause of death of young people aged between 15 and 24 in Australia at this time. For every completed suicide, there are often between 20 and 100 attempts that are attempted. However many are successful after only one attempt.

In economical terms, adolescent suicides cost over $100 million per year to the Australian Economy. By researching information on the internet and reading four books I have attempted to briefly summarise why this is happening... (more)

... to me, "Bon looked great then, didn't he?" It was a very emotional moment for the both of us.Did you go to his funeral? Where is he buried?

I Am Sorry - a National Apology in Australia

By V, published on Feb 12, 2008

While this could be seen as lacking in relevance to Broowaha readers, I beg to differ. We are after all, citizens of the world. So too, Americans and Australians alike are currently living in times of serious change and I believe, living in an atmosphere of hope.

On the 3rd of December, 2007 Australia changed government. Our 25th and second longest serving  Prime Minister, the Liberal Party’s John Howard was succeeded by Labor’s Kevin Rudd after 11 years of service. For 11 years, this minion of George Bush has succeeded at stripping my country of most things I believed in.  It was not... (more)

Venticello is Splendido!

By Ed Attanasio, published on Jan 3, 2008

...a guy named Paul Henry. Paul who, you ask? Exactly. And as I have written in many of my past reviews, I truly believe that Italy has produced the finest cuisine in the history of mankind. People can make arguments for each and every culture’s food -- Asia, Spain, Mexico, Germany, Australia, Africa, Britian, Portugal, Russia -- every country has some amazing traditional dishes that have been passed down through the ages, and each is arguably superior to the next. The U.S. doesn’t really have a cuisine, unless you consider macaroni and cheese and meat loaf cuisine. We... (more)
