    This is actually a highly commendable act. The two scholarships are for students from Indonesia to study undergraduate degrees in Australia, and at a time when there has been so much vitriol and anger directed towards the acts of that nation, it is a conciliatory gesture that demonstrates the core values that differentiate our society.

    Yes, it will cop a lot of flac. But consider this editorial from a few days ago:

    I'm sure they could find much better deserving Catholics in either Aust. or Indonesia.
    In a heartbeat I could nominate the little old lady across the road who has spent 2 days a week for the last 30-odd years helping out at the old people's home. Or the young kid on the news last nite that gives up her weekend helping young disabled kids stuck in geriatric care units...

    anyone over that pair of heroin peddling filth!
