Sunday soapbox

Sunday’s soapbox is yours to use as you will – within the bounds of decency and absence of defamation.

You’re welcome to look back or forward, discuss issues of the moment, to pontificate, ponder or point us to something of interest, to educate, elucidate or entertain, to muse or amuse.

    15 ῞Οταν οὖν ἴδητε τὸ βδέλυγμα τῆς ἐρημώσεως
    τὸ ῥηθὲν διὰ Διανιὴλ τοῦ προφήτου ἑστὼς ἐν τόπῳ ἁγίῳ – ὁ ἀναγινώσκων νοείτω
    16 τότε οἱ ἐν τῇ ᾿Ιουδαίᾳ φευγέτωσαν ἐπὶ τὰ ὄρη,

    τὸ βδέλυγμα τῆς ἐρημώσεως.

    A $40,000 campaign to convince Wellingtonians to give to charities, instead of beggars, has so far raised about $1000.

    The Alternative Giving campaign cost Wellington City Council $39,800, but so far only 40 people have donated. For the six homeless support charities involved, the donations work out to less than $200 each.

    But the campaign may have had more success in convincing people to stop giving directly to beggars, with some of them reporting a drop in their daily take.

    The campaign has been running since July 1 and is meant to draw money away from the beggars on the street and bring it to support agencies
