Fork in hand, raining soup

And then there was Clarke, the proverbial man who when it was raining soup found himself with only a fork. 

He came in at 2-362, a free ticket. For 50 minutes, he laboured and groped and flashed and missed some balls and mistimed others and looked like a man leafing through a manual for a lost bookmark, none of which might have mattered because most batsmen as they age make more hesitant starts, except that then he got out anyway. 

He made seven, a less dignified score even than nought.

Post revolution the only question

Click o SMH report 9/7/15
Chronic, deep-seated, avaricious, disrespectful dishonesty is the hallmark of all Australian political ministries and councils in these days. 

The executives, the parliaments and their protegees are all bawdy shops. 

This unhappy state Australians will otherwise. 

Such is the inevitable human momentum towards survival and better, all good tomorrows. 

That willy otherwise requires revolution. 

The nature of post-revolution new system of Australian government is the only question.

#Greece wonderful people

You have to feel sorry for Narcissus. At that
ancient pond, in fact he was fishing, had accidentally sunk his tackle, and was puzzling how to retrieve past the fresh water octopod grinning evilly back at him, rolling writhing tentacles against salivating gums, transmuting hungry thought to bubble up through the heavenly waters, "Jeez you're a dish", which bubble when burst at the surface carried the sound of words ever yet misapprehended.

Australia MPs are unlucky

A federal Coalition MP charged taxpayers to attend last year's Bledisloe Cup, listing the Brisbane game as a "sitting of Parliament" on his expenses claim. Queensland Liberal National MP Ken O'Dowd also charged the cost of bringing a family member to the final match of the annual Australia versus New Zealand rugby series. More SMH 5/7/15 >>

Everybody owns one corpse not theirs

The law is that there is no property in a dead body. That is, whereas a near kin may properly claim possession of a corpse for the temporary purposes, such right to possession is not valuable, not properly for sale.

Law is our faculty of discussion, now. Law serves other purposes, too. Let's see, now by law, and by contemplating corrollaries, or other distortions of a base precept, such as that in the paragraph foregoing, what such throws may depict, particularly when we're talking a dead body.

If the body is not anyone's property, is it so that it is everyone's property? It suits the hygiene of the weal that the corpse is properly, respectfully interred. But that is not a property in the corpse.

The legal disposition of the personalties and realties, the chattels and lands, the properties of the deceased is quite else than what we may conceive of the dead body, which may be of the departed, but is not that person.

Let's turn the base on its head. If not any particular property - rare of the objects - in a dead body, may we for useful amusement contemplate that every property attaches to that dead body.

Obama, a spirit for all seasons

"For too long, we've been blind to the unique mayhem that gun violence inflicts upon this nation.

"Sporadically, our eyes are open when eight [nine] of our brothers and sisters are cut down in a church basement, 12 in a movie theatre, 26 in an elementary school. But I hope we also see the 30 precious lives cut short by gun violence in this country every single day the countless more whose lives are forever changed, the survivors crippled, the children traumatised and fearful every day as they walk to school, the husband who will never feel his wife's warm touch, the entire communities whose grief overflows every time they have to watch what happened to them happening to some other place."

#Abbott endangers Australians

During the broadcast panelist Bret Walker, SC - pictured left - who was the former independent national security legislation monitor, also said an investigation should be launched into whether Australian officials paid people smugglers.

"In relation to crime, call me old fashioned but there should be an investigation, proper material gathered and charges considered and if prosecutors think something should be done about it," Mr Walker said. "We at least live in a country where superior orders will not be a defence.  

"I don't want to suggest that any Australian Commonwealth officer has done anything wrong. I don't know." 

But Mr Walker said the claims could end in a "historical conflict" where the executive refuse to answer questions about how public resources have been used and whether there has been unlawful conduct.

"That is not a matter of the criminal law. That is a matter of responsible Government here and now, day by day in parliament," he said. More SMH 16 June 2015 >>
