    No tommorow - no tommorow


    And I find it kind of funny
    I find it kind of sad

    When people run in circles
    It's a very, very Mad World

    Happy Birthday - Happy Birthday
    Made to feel the way that every child should

    No one knew me - no one knew me
    Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
    Look right through me - look right through me

  • [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]"By its nature, investigative journalism usually involves writing against the grain, confronting the prevailing political orthodoxy, and often subverting it. Inevitably, investigative reporters are treated with suspicion, sometimes hostility. They tend to be lone wolves who suffer marginalisation, branded (at best) eccentrics, accused (at worst) of being traitors in order to demean and degrade what they write and broadcast" - John Pilger.
