Different perspectives of deformity from yesterday's papers

Martinho before the surgery.
A four year old East Timorese Boy, Martinho Ronaldo,
with a severe facial deformity.
Overjoyed: Elsa Sanchez and her son Martinho at the Children First Foundation's farm in Kilmore yesterday.
He is brought to Melbourne for treatment that makes him "normal" again with
much better prospects of living a happy life.  What a lovely smile.

For the details see here.

Gosh no comments on this?! We are indeed living in a strange world. I've heard of this implant craze before though not yet seen anybody down our local shops sporting this look yet.

I do enjoy reading your blog.

Hi Gina,

I've been so lazy keeping this up through the term...How are you keeping?
I think the bagel heads must be pretty fringe - I haven't seen any either... Imagine if the creativity was channelled productively... hmm maybe I am getting old and grumpy...

Take care & keep cool :)
