Jewel in the crown overlooked Goff's claims are hard to fathom When dirt sticks, you can't shake it off Refreshing to see courteous display Sir Bob Jones on the money Police need more power for parties Gorge speed limit doesn't add up Collins fallout all smoke and mirrors Words of 'honest Abe' ring true Good for Auckland, but what about us?

OPINION: Prince Harry speaks, with boyish enthusiasm, of his pleasure at killing Taliban soldiers, showing an eye-for-an-eye attitude (Harry ''killed Taliban'' on Afghan tour of duty, Jan 23). I wonder how he distinguishes between Taliban militants and non-combatant villagers, who might also include children. This, while travelling at 500 feet altitude, and at a high defensive speed. He uses a high- powered, fast-spitting weapon that was never designed to distinguish between friend and foe. Has he given this a thought? Unlike PlayStation or the computer games he enjoys, firearms kill real people without distinguishing between their innocence or guilt.
