I have messaged with Retro this morning when I heard. He is fine.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …

He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Greetings,

I only saw about it briefly on the ABC News website, so chances are that at this stage, you know more than I do.

Last time something similar happened in the Melbourne CBD, one of my friends was within an arms length of the car. I'm hoping this doesn't give rise to any flashbacks etc.
