Smokin’ Issues: Public Transport, Kurt Cobain and Earth Hour

Last week, TBS courted with a bit of controversy for doing what we are striving to do –  cover a range of topics from a range of perspectives. Essentially, we posted four distinct viewpoints on March in March by four of our contributors:

This generated some extensive conversations on the site and Facebook, and some “interesting” emails in my inbox, which is what we like @ TBS! Conversations, comments, debate and even the odd brawl or too – all in good faith of course!

Anyway, we have…marched on from that into another week of TBS-ness, kicking off with Tory-slaying ALP warrior Albo, the Hon Anthony Albanese MP, and his cry for a more well-thought out public infrastructure policy from the Abbott government.

It’s great having Albo contribute to TBS, joining several other MPs who have written done so, and we encourage pollies from every corner of politics to submit other pieces to us to get their views across to TBSers.

We stay political on hump day with a comedic twist as Xavier Toby throws a WTF bomb into our electoral system to see what comes out and Nicola Ranger picks apart this Saturday’s “Earth Hour” as having lost any real political impetus. Lyssa Campbell gets into Kurt Cobain and conspiracy theories, Nick Spellicy puts a spotlight on celebrity limelight, and two new writers join us – Nathalie Camerlynck  talks up “the death of skinny” and Yalei Wang muses on being alone.

Plus of course there will be random signals, puffs and smoke mirrors (maybe J-Law gets a mention in one of them…)
