The view from California, Scottsdale, anywhere...

The whole world is watching, as the Greens once pointed out. This bloke from California thinks we're stoopid. And maybe he's right.

And here's an ABC News report on the view from Scottsdale [PDF, 227KB]. They have their point of view, and the loss of jobs should give us pause. But not our Pauly. Now, if it turns out that the northeast is paying the price for the pulp mill, I think we'd have to say there's been a conspiracy. I know conspiracy theorists get ridiculed, but in this political climate, it starts to seem less far-fetched. Who can we trust?

And a quote from Tasmania Police in The Australian in relation to the protesters walking along a road in the Weld;

"Anyone acting illegally will be dealt with according to the law."

Unless of course they happen to a GBE.

And finally, here's a link to a sad page that makes you wonder how the poor sod who produces honey is supposed to fight these people. It makes you want to find a more aggressive way of stopping the stoopidity and injustice, but of course I wouldn't, would I? Your leatherwood honey reading guide (unedited!).
