ok - so here i am for a few brief minutes...
i've had a great time, will be back in the saddle fully on monday - complete with my new suntan (i'll probably type a lot more slowly after 2 weeks on the beach).
I havent been able to follow too much stuff these last coupla weeks - the only 'news' i've consumed is stuff like 'there was a fight between two men on the corner of streets X & Y on the weekend - thankfully, no-one was hurt'
i haven't heard a single thing about the libby trial. i've just now learnt that wilkes and foggo are in strife (woohoo). the john howard / obama thing has been kinda big news (yay, us) - it seems to me that Little Johnny was put up to that by his pay masters - Why Johnny? and Why Obama? and Why Now? are all interesting questions.
oh - and the iran stuff looks like it's getting ramped up still/again - although the lies are so transparent that they don't even survive first contact with the (oz) media so it's difficult to know where that will end up. i did hear one funny report the other day that ahmedinijad was on diane sawyer and that Bush 'countered the iranian president's claims on the less-popular c-span network.'
i hear that the KTM screening went great last weekend, and separately, waxman's committee 'passed' some great whistleblower protection 'legislation' on Tuesday (I'm not exactly sure what happens next and what it all means - I'll report more later)
