  • Cracker: Stoned in Charge,

    Fascinating. So, can we find out more about this stoned driving legislative reform in the States? And is there any uniform measure of intoxication that can be cited in this context? How do they tackle it in other jurisdictions where cannabis has been decriminalised? What about other health and safety issues?

    Graeme, how much cost to the :) consumer and taxpayer :) is there in this litigation?

    I still miss Brunswick from the nineties and early noughties...(sigh)...

    Arrgh! Has anyone read Matt McCarten's latest inept defence of the Dismal Duo's Radio Live brainmelt in the Herald?

    Most comics are of a far higher literary standard than the 'average' (sic) issue of Investigrunt, though, Geoff. And far more readable!

  • Hard News: Bring on the Revival,

    Meanwhile, on the drek side of the Web, Investigrunt and Ian Wishart are bleating that they may have to go completely online*. They style themselves as a 'successful' magazine. I'd love to know how, as they never seem to release details about little things like (i) their ownership (ii) chief shareholders (iii) or even independently verifiable circulation figures...

    *Excellent. Now I won't lose my lunch whenever I involuntarily encounter "it" in my local library.

    Has anyone noticed TV3's Think Tank programme, hosted by Tamihere, also seems to have vanished from its Saturday lineup? One wonders if this is mere coincidence, or...?

    Matthew, may I congratulate you for your resolute stance on walking out on those two characters when they crossed the line? Well done, that man! :)

    Try to avoid benzodiazepines, they're addictive.

    I wish MediaWorks would divest itself of Radio Live. Granted, it's nowhere near as bad as the late unlamented Radio Pacific, and I'm just grateful that I can't get the apparently loathsome Leighton Smith down here in Wellington. As for the dumping of Tamihere and Jackson, they deserved this. Tamihere's loyalty to his brother David is commendable if one considers it as whanau solidarity, but he allowed it to warp and distort his perceptions of feminism and deal with women as social and moral equals. As for Jackson, the man is politically clueless. One Maori female friend to me described Jackson as "Maoridom's answer to your Chris Trotter fella."

    One hopes this dumping is permanent and not temporary. US style far right talkback demagoguery has no place in mainstream New Zealand politics or society. Especially not when it comes to concerns like those over sexual violation.
