A voice for koalas: Vale Olivia Newton-John

The Rainforest Information Centre has expressed its deep condolences to the family and close friends of Olivia Newton-John who was literally the voice of the koala.

A small correction to David Heilpern’s article from last week to give credit where its due. Seventy-five years before the King James version these lines appeared in the Tyndale bible: ‘Ypocryte / first cast oute the beame oute of thyne awne eye / and then shalte thou se clearly to plucte oute the moote oute off thy brothers eye.’

Amongst William Tyndale’s other contributions to the English language were, ‘In the begynnynge’ and ‘let there be lyghte’, but for his efforts (quoting Wikipedia), ‘he was convicted of heresy and executed by strangulation, after which his body was burnt at the stake’.

  1. There was a ‘settled’ doctrine that the government relied on to control the peasants, he tried to correct the record, the government took him out, the peasants clapped and cheered like trained seals. Same thing happened to Socrates. But we today have to get rid of our ‘deniers’ with their ‘alternate facts’ cause it’s totally not the same thing when we do the same thing.
