I will be away for the next two days. In the meantime, feel free to read the following:
- Closing the anthropogenic carbon cycle by recycling CO2 emissions into fuel.
- I guessed it would take about six months for a "stolen generation" compensation claim to hit the Federal Courts. I may still be right. However, Victorian courts are already facing compensation claims. Precedent indicates $800,000 per "stolen child".
- On Wednesday night, I heard Mal Brough indicate that a bipartisan war cabinet would not be a bad idea to tackle the problems experienced by Aborigines, given the right preconditions. Today, Opposition Leader Brendan Nelson proposed that Mal Brough be part of the war cabinet with Tony Abbott demanding "equal say in the partnership".
- Two great polemicists give Archbishop Williams grief over his Shari'a in Britain comments: marxist Christopher Hitchens and the mysterious "Spengler" in the Asia Times.
- More tokenism and populism from Rubber Rudd.
- Jihadist prototype, Imad Mughniyah was killed by a car bomb a few days ago. Interesting theories on who is responsible for sending this evil man to the eternal punishment he deserves.
- More Chinese spying on the United States uncovered. Add this to the breaching of NSA security I reported earlier this year.
- Howard government ministers Downer, McGauran and Costello to leave within months.
