In the town of Wilcannia, New South Wales, the life expectancy of
Aborigines is 37 -- lower than the Central African Republic, perhaps the
poorest country on earth, currently racked by civil war.

Wilcannia's other distinction is that the Cuban government runs a literacy
programme there, teaching young Aboriginal children to read and write. This
is what the Cubans are famous for -- in the world's poorest countries.
Australia is one of the world's richest countries.
