"I FIND your headline 'Aussies to hunt elephants in East Africa' and a picture of an elephant with tusks highly insensitive," writes KC, Sydney.

This is journalism and you need a catchy headline for a story about expanding oil and gas exploration offshore Kenya, but to liken this in jest to the slaughter of animals for mainly white capitalist gain is totally inappropriate.

I'm sure that you can think of something else as a headline. Yes, I was born and raised in East Africa.
