Words from Lorne Johnson, Australian teacher and poet.

I'm disappointed that Mike Carlton has left the Sydney Morning Herald. He said it was because he'd been called a Nazi and an anti-Semite too often of late after his pro-Palestinian dispatches. Too many Napoleons - Orwell would be saddened. I read Carlton's Saturday column religiously. We need genuine, brave, gutsy voices like his, voices that ask us to be more compassionate and tolerant and demand answers from the controlling powers that be. LJ, August 6 2014.
