Another Dark Little Corner

Started this before change to "New Blogger", as backup in case of trouble with digiphoto blog "In a Small Dark Room", or rants & links blog "Hello Cruel World" . Useful - at one stage Dark Room was there, but like the astrophysical Dark Matter, we could't see it ... better now, but kept Just In Case.

There is nothing. There is no God and no universe, there is only empty space, and in it a lost and homeless and wandering and companionless and indestructible Thought. And I am that thought. And God, and the Universe, and Time, and Life, and Death, and Joy and Sorrow and Pain only a grotesque and brutal dream, evolved from the frantic imagination of that same Thought.

Australia's First Terrorist Bomb Refurbished out of History  
Australia's First Terrorist Bomb Refurbished out of History
Have Australia's first terrorist bomb deaths in February 1978 been forgotten?
The Hilton bomb hasn't been mentioned discussing terrorism over the last few years.

In pre-Olympic works the memorial stele was flattened to a disregarded, walked-upon street plaque. In 2003 the 25th Anniversary went unremarked. No murmur was made when the plaque disappeared under renovation hoardings in that same year, despite a fuss in July of 2003 over a memorial to Ghost Train fire victims destroyed renovating Luna Park.

Now the Hilton is re-opening, the hoardings removed. I searched the footpath and visible entrances in George St where the explosion happened. Nothing. Wiped away like Stalin's victims in Soviet photos.

Why? Shame because the dead found no justice? Denial? Carelessness? Perhaps just that; no-one cares. In 2032 will we remember the blackened, gutted bodies of last Thursday?
