  • Hard News: There's a lot of it about,

    Chuck, what I enjoy about PA is that it's refreshingly free of snideness and innuendo.

    And then you popped up.

  • Island Life: More billboards,

    I'm personally quite relieved that these are, actually, hopeless compared with what Ansell did last time

    John Ansell's not doing these. Does anybody know who is? I'm curious.

    Look at my background.

    Said John, the man from Merrill’s

    We shall sell. Trust me.

  • Field Theory: Did you see that?,

    With everyone plugged into the Olympics is anyone feeling a little bit sorry for Tasman and Northland? I'm not.

    I'm feeling sorry for Northland because I'm from Northland.

    I remember listening to Northland defending the Ranfurly Shield, on the radio. And my Dad telling me about Peter Jones. Buggered was a bad word in those days. And Sid Going and Bevan Holmes coming and talk to us at Northland College. And giving Winston McCarthy a lift into town - a little feller with a drinkers nose and that unmistakeable voice.

    They all came from Northland.

  • Hard News: Yr Enemies R Stupid,

    a paranoid loon who strings a bunch of bs together into a screed that the gulible and ignorant sadly lap up.

    I have to. I can't help myself. It sounds remarkably like GWB.

  • Hard News: Yr Enemies R Stupid,

    Always appreciate your thoughts James, but the tongue in my cheek was pointed elsewhere.

    I'll figure it out one day. (And he crept quietly away.)

  • Hard News: Yr Enemies R Stupid,

    Where's James when you need him to tell us how it really is?

    Trying to work and, as always with PAS, being distracted.

  • Hard News: Yr Enemies R Stupid,

    Terrorists and terrorism are mentioned three times in passing in nearly 80 pages.

    Contrast this with Bush's 'Axis of Evil' speech in 2002. Lenka Clayton, an English film-maker, broke the speech down into its individual words and arranged them in alphabetic order

    If it wasn't so frightening it would be funny.

    The evolution of rhetoric.
