Face of the Day

A part of New Zealand has disappeared.  I was just musing that at least a third of the people in Auckland wouldn’t know who Murray Ball was or what all the humour in his cartoons means.  It’s probably part of growing old, but I don’t like the fact that we have a New Zealand where a lot of new Kiwis have no idea what a part of our culture this man represents.

But such is life.  And in this case, death.   Murray was a raging socialist, but that can be forgiven because he was a good bastard.

RIP Murray Ball, ONZM 1939-2017.
