I use this blog as a soap box to preach (ahem... to talk :-) about subjects that interest me.

James Kirk Street

As a Trekker, I’d love to live in James Kirk Street, even without the “T.”. Wouldn’t you?

James Kirk Street, less than 5km away from where I live, was named after James Frank Kirk (1920-1997). The ACT (Australian Capital Territory) Planning Authority explains that he was Chief Executive of Esso and of the Australian Bicentennial Authority. Kirk was made a Companion of the Order of Australia, awarded an honorary DSc from Newcastle University and became a champion of the environment as chairman of the Landcare Australia Limited.

Fair enough.
