An interesting contrast

This is just a quick notice from Hack (a lovely program that you all should listen to).

Toowoomba, a town of about 114,000 people 78 miles from Brisbane. And while not rural, it does serve as a regional gateway to the Queensland interior. The interesting part for me was the difference in government attitude, as expressed by street artist Ian Mccallum, "When I was growing up, people would move to Brisbane to paint - but the government just dominates people there. Out here, you can pretty much paint wherever you want."

Anyways, just a thought about the difference between truly urban centers and regional centers in Australia.
