Something good

I read something in the news just now which helped my faith in humanity a bit. Apparently, a poll before September 11 showed that 49% were in favour of NZ taking in the Afghan refugees from the Tampa. A follow-up poll *after* September 11 showed that the figure had GONE UP to 59%.

I know these polls are of a very small and possibly unrepresentative group, but that made me very, very proud of my country.
