Why it is raining in Queensland…

This surely is a joke. Right? But attributing the drought to daylight saving makes about as much sense as the other anti-daylight saving lines (sad cows, faded curtains)…

15 and a half minutes of fame

I may have extended Corey Worthington’s 15 minutes of fame by referencing him in this letter I wrote to The Australian – but then he went and got booked for speeding and made the news by himself. My letter was a response to a stupid piece by Phillip Adams suggesting young people should get to vote because his 16 year old daughter is smarter than the average voter. My letter was edited slightly to fit in the space available so the second bit seems to be a bit of a non sequitur.
