  • Hard News: Some Week,

    More heresy: Most people don't care about the Mount Albert by-election either.

    Well, around the traps this week, there seem to be many people who do.

  • Field Theory: Quickly on a busy morning,

    < quote>Chiefs v Hurricanes:* The best team won</quote>


    ..and they will again, tonight.

    Declining crowds.

    Well, it didn't seem like that last Saturday night, packed into the Waikato Stadium. My beloved and I had to sit rows apart, as we could only get single tickets by mid-week. Tonight's game looks to be fully occupied too.

  • Southerly: Dear Dr Bollard,

    Dr Dave (If I may presmue): I guess you have a good remedy for persistent gout? Involves hanging around railway tracks?

  • Hard News: That Buzzing Sound,

    Time to call "Time Gentleman, Please" on certain currents in this conversation?

    I expect that Russell is preparing an exciting new posting for us, at the end of a very interesting week. In the meantime, I have my tickets for the Chiefs vs Brumbies tonight!

  • Hard News: That Buzzing Sound,

    I thought it was rather revealing when Sean Plonker and Geoff Robinson were wrapping up Morning Report this morning, around a discussion of twitter and tweeting; Geoff R. saying that you could post 146 words, then referring to himself, Plonker and Lynne Freeman as "three dinosaurs". You said it, mate!

    I think that the Families Commission has been showing its political colours for some time. A month or so back, it gave a bunch of money to John Terris (George Bush-lover and Lower Hutt reactionary) and his bunch of advanced-age alarmists in Media Matters, to go into schools to warn students about all the 'gratuitous sex and violence' on TV.

    There was no consultation about the need nor the desirability of doing this.

  • Hard News: Modern Lolz,

    all that folk music from the 60's, like the Chad Mitchell Trio.

    'Folk' in the sense that they had moving body parts?

  • Hard News: Modern Lolz,

    Geoff, I love the way True Blood weaves in the racial politics so skillfully.

    We just luuurvvvv Lafeyette, the very stroppy, gay Black short-order cook.

    Yikes--I better get back to my essay marking!
