A reader emailed to say that he liked the piece about the crows. I thought I'd share my reply:
It's a piece about crows but it's really about much more. The more I travel, the more I feel sad for the way Perth is being hijacked by the "everything must be native" mentality. No one else in the world thinks that way. They laugh at the idea in fact. If we're to become a truly world city we need to get off that bandwagon because its ultimate destination is a sleepy little town called Backwater.
