Lili's pointed question of the day


Cars fitted with potentially-fatally defective airbags have been on the market in Australia since the turn of the century, and what have motor vehicle manufacturers, governments, car dealers, police, car insurance companies and car owners been doing to resolve this problem? SFA I'd say. Insurance companies do more investigations of vehicle accidents than the police. They must have been aware of a pattern of faulty airbags. How long have they been sitting on this information?

Lili's question of the day


Who spends the most time enjoying the sweet perfumes of the purple bearded iris and the heliotrope in your garden? You or your weeding lady?
