Hope you all have a good break. We down at the weekender in Victor Harbor cleaning it up for friends to stay in for a couple of weeks.

And you Gary. Thanks for the effort of trying to bring current affairs and pol economy, as something rendered eventually explicable and comprehensible, to your benighted readers.
How atypical.
God knows what reward it brings you personally, you have nothing learn from someone like me.
Hopefully an outside of uni environment sampling like the one here gives you a comparison of some sort as to the insights and awareness of your on campus students,as provided in response to the content and substance of your courses and subjects.
People like you aren't just teachers, you are leaders.
All the best for a new year, now.

the internet is slowly eroding the wall between academia and the rest of the public sphere--thank goodness.

Thanks and best wishes to you too.

thanks Dave. All the best in the New Year

Thankyou Gary. I pop in here a lot and enjoy reading what you have to say on so many matters. Great stuff on NBN and Murdoch misinformation, in particular.

joe2,
thanks for that. I find it hard to take this kind of biological determinism--ie., that whether political allegiances are hard-wired into people---seriously.

Good comedy though--as you point out.
