Enough.
Today's editorial: 
''On July 12, 2012, after the death of Thomas Kelly, the Herald ran an editorial calling for a safer Sydney under the headline ''Enough is enough with Kings Cross lawlessness''. Eighteen months have passed and there has been a great deal of effort. But there has not been what we perceive as a galvanising effort. The police and pubs and clubs do not seem to have a common plan. Kings Cross is as seedy as ever. Too many young men feel they can take drugs and get drunk and menace people with no fear of serious consequences. All of this has to change. The time is now.'' 

This is a terrific piece from News Review today by one of my favourite 13 year olds, who this year won his second major writing award. 2013 through the eyes of a teenager, by Jason Cleary-Gorton. www.smh.com.au/comment/from-war-to-weather-a-year-of-living-dangerously-20131227-2zz8s.html
