Making golf courses useful

In the news this week:
The Department of Housing has confirmed it has reached an agreement with the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder over a new site for an Indigenous short-stay facility.

The council was asked to suggest alternative locations for the centre after community opposition to the Government's preferred location of Vivian Street.

A spokeswoman for the department says plans are underway to buy a section of land at the Boulder Golf Club.

She says the sale is subject to the outcome of community consultation, which is expected to continue until mid-September.

It reminds me of this piece by George Carlin.

I'm just sorry that George didn't live long enough to see it happen.
