I just can't make sense of this  
It's been a terrible week in Queensland, this week; firstly with the Dreamworld tragedy - which really hit home across Australia; I think nearly everyone who ever went to Dreamworld would have gone on that particular ride - and then yesterday with the senseless murder of the bus driver, not all that far from where I live. The first tragedy was a terrible accident but the second was so random; I can't fathom it at all. I just feel for the families in both incidents. Just terrible, sad events.

The US sounds about as parochial as Queensland is. I moved here from New South Wales and was amazed at the Qld slant put on every news story- it just never happened like that in NSW. Remember the Boxing Day tsunami in Thailand? Our local paper's headline - "14 Queenslanders Die". The total death count did get a mention at least, but unless they're Queenslanders they don't make the headlines. :-/
