mislaid out

It's always easier to read narrow rather than wide columns. The West prefers to spread its stories across the full width of the double page. With my poor vision I sometimes have to ask my wife to search the pages, to find where a story began.

It was all worth it this morning when I read, or misread, the caption under a photo with a story about Qantas.

As I read it: The West's journalists Ben Harvey and Geoffrey Thomas grill The Methodist Ladies College choir.

Talk about tough hard-hitting investigative journalism.

pay for forgiveness

the business of the casino is to make money. success is measured by profit. the more the better.

there are certain costs associated with the business. one of these costs is a fine for illegal activities.

certain acts are illegal. money laundering, for example. money laundering is what a casino does. very well.

luckily for the casino, the path to forgiveness is very short. no need to stop laundering. no need to change practices. no need to send directors or owners to jail. just pay a fine. factor the fine into the cost of doing business. a slight reduction in profit. then business as usual.

the fine is a bribe to the government. forgive us our sins and we will continue our criminal business. continue to make illegal profits. continue to pay the annual bribes as fines.

our government is about to increase the fines. that is, they will demand larger bribes.

there is only one honest way to prevent a casino from breaking the law: if they break the law, close them down. not pass ownership to the next crooked owners. close the entire criminal business.

either crime is illegal. or it is not.

New life for Libs

So the Libs are bringing in a cricketer to revitalise the party.
If they can bring Shane Warne into politics then they will have the magic to bring back their party.

Brush up on politics

Basil Zempilas certainly understands politics. Forget policies. Ignore knowledge and ability. Just brush your hair, is his advice to Boris Johnson.

In his own area of special interest Basil will next advise Natanui and Fyfe to get short back and sides haircuts. Then we can take them seriously as footballers.

now pay me

In just one brief headline The West has captured the spirit of Australian politics. "WA has delivered so now it is time to repay the favor".
Bugger the national interest. Bugger the world threat of climate change. Bugger the call for racial religious and gender equality.
Now our vote is in. We -- we -- want to be paid.

May we commemorate

I'm preparing to celebrate -- or at least commemorate -- 21st May.

May 21 is the Universal Australia Day. It will be sixty years since both Blak and Whyt people were allowed to vote in Australia. I'm Whyt and I'm proud to live in a country with universal suffrage. Though I'm still not sure of the wisdom of giving women the vote.

one letter from the truth

the headline tells us biggest rap act on way.
i misread it. my mind added a single letter... i thought it was more politicians on their way to sell themselves.

i had read a letter C in front of the word RAP.
