Apparently there is a stigma associated with living in the Yarrunga area of Wangaratta.

I wonder if I can get my deposit back?

The ABC is annually spending A$3 million on company cars, the death-wish Australian Democrats have criticised capital punishment for Amrozi ...

... and Tim Blair is posting observations on parish pump newspapers in outback Western Australia and northwest Victoria?

The site has clearly been hijacked.

And there's no stigma associated with living in the rest of Wangaratta?
The only claim to fame for this dump is being poked fun at in a "Captain Matchbox Whoopie Band" song from about 1975.

Ever had a tune buzzing in your head that, whatever you do, you just can't lose and it's killing you?

Thanks, Habib.

Twenty-eight freakin' years free of that appalling song. And you've brought it back.

Please, for us challenged outsiders, what or where is Wangaratta and why should there be a question about its stigmata?
