Truth Column May 2-8

My Truth column May 2-8 (the print edition carried the photo):

It’s my son’s 19th birthday. So I retrieved the newspaper kept from the day of his birth.
My younger daughter reads the TV schedule over my shoulder.
“You had Oprah then?”
“But why was she on at one o’clock in the morning?”
“No, silly. That’s one in the afternoon. TV shut down at midnight.”
Then we laugh over a photo of a very young Helen Clark aiming to make Labour “… the biggest party in Parliament”.
She did, temporarily, but she’s been and gone. Like Margaret Thatcher though, she left a legacy.
