The Ugly Duckling

Posted: August 18, 2008 in Uncategorized

Quite a story out of a small mining town in Queensland, Australia.  Seems the mayor wants to encourage more women to relocate to his town, but I think his tactic is a bit unusual:

“John Moloney, mayor of Mount Isa in northwestern Queensland, told a newspaper his town was a place for “ugly ducklings to flourish into beautiful swans” and called on the “beauty-disadvantaged” to flock there.” – Read the full story at

Have to wonder if Mr. Moloney is going to be re-elected to his position when his term comes up.

    Interesting. I’ve also been exploring Aussie happenings, particularly in the world of kangaroo boxing, as well as koalas, Barry Crocker, and Matthew McConaughey over at the Rodeo.
