Lunacy, alright

Aaaah. I'm so, so proud to be part of the loony fringe. Aren't we all? It's funny though, when you think of how many of us there actually are. Not so much a fringe as a full blown freakin' mullet, I'd say.

Hmmm.... I wonder if anyone has told The Australian... Any volunteers?

Great, thanks. While you're at it, you might want to give the editorial staff a bit of helpful advice about editorial style.

'This is an editorial?' my students would ask, wrinkling noses. 'This is the 'voice' that this paper wants to project?'

'Nuff said.

Except this: David Freesmith's thoughtful argument stands strong against this, this and this. Talk about a multi-pronged attack... Except for the fact that they all say the same thing (and I don't just mean echoing each other's sentiments- seriously, Kenneth's Wiltshire meandering sludge splodges its way through three separate articles- impressive. Or something.)
