I read the CI News online articles about concerns about New Zealand spying on the Cook Islands with amusement. The CI should be far more concerned with spying on the part of that other, larger nation, that has been so 'generous' to the Cook Islands these past several years. Recall what Frederick Marryat, in Peter Simple, 1833, stated: 'A little bird has whispered a secret to me.' After all, God employs birds to spy for angels who report to Him details on daily events on earth, to include the works and progress of his Enemy, Satan. Why shouldn't New Zealand do the same thing?

Well, finally that New Zealand company Telecom (now known as Spark) has decided to pull out of the Cook Islands and sell its 60 per cent share to a Samoan company. The new owners could scarcely do a worse job. Let's hope that their rapacity will be less than their predecessors. Of course the Government still owns 40 per cent and that could mean pressure on the new owner to keep prices rising. Let's hope not. Ben T.

I am passionately fond of collecting of stamped picture postcards with whole stamp and postmark. My aim is to collect postcards from all states/countries all over the world. I have such postcards from 197 different countries up to now. Unfortunately I don't have such a postcard from the Cook Islands. Is there a possibility to receive a postcard from you? Or, do you know anybody whom I can contact to be realise my wish? The postcard can be used. It does not have to be addressed to me. My contact data: email@example.com

My family and I are thinking of relocating to Rarotonga. I was wondering if anyone can give me an idea of housing costs in Avarua. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you! Adam.
