Mr Nose: Contemplating the Skietkommando

It’s not every day that noseweek is used as a battering ram by both sides in a fight. But the pesticide wars (noses99,100&109) being fought in the vineyard-enveloped Riebeek Valley have taken just such a turn and noseweek has been accused of bias by several upstanding people in the town; of stirring up a storm in a brandy-glass, of being anti-farming, anti-tourism and anti-dorp.

If there is one thing a dutchman cant stand, it's having his nefarious shortcomings aired publicly, especially when those activities have the same ultimate outcome of agent orange. It just doesn't seem right to go to kerk op sondae now, because everyone knows I is a Chemical Ali, who voel niks for the environment and health of people and animals, not to mention the groundwater.

Mr Nose, you and your buddies Max du Preez and Harold Strachan have taken up a succesful cause before. And look what it's got us - pages and pages in Noseweek of corrupt government goings-on, and very little governing.

Keep up the good work in exposing the corruption and baddies, but I suggest you choose a worthy labour of love like flower arranging in your spare time in future.
