iPhone : School hours should be treated with reverence, for they are full of potential knowledge. This seems to be the view of MP Craig Kelly, whose own reverence for knowledge, admittedly, stops at the metaphorical door of climate science | Jacqueline Maley smh.com.au/politics/feder…

iPhone : I do love my job. A few weeks ago Lisa Davies asks me if I want to interview a Western Saharawi activist. Sure, I say, and retreat quietly to Google Western Sahara. I learnt a lot lunching with the vivacious and inspirational Tecber smh.com.au/world/africa/l…

Twitter Web App : Do you lack a uterus? Then please, step up to the soapbox and give us your opinion on them! My bit on abortion decriminalisation and the messy nature of progress:

Twitter Web App : Upper House MLC Lou Amato, opponent of abortion decriminalisation, just now, on the conscientious objection amendment: "Why should anyone be forced to do something they don’t want to do?"
