Linday Perigo: No Place For Mother Theresa In Ayn Rand's Gospel

- I'm delighted to report that Ayn Rand’s philosophy, Objectivism, is an underground stream flowing through New Zealand. It has shot to the surface in several places, most recently a new web site for the Centre for Objectivist Studies, at http://www.objectivism.org.nz. See... Lindsay Perigo: Diabolical Works Of Mother Teresa [1]

Why Won’t Clark Answer My Christine Rankin Question? – Newman

See... PM Ducks For Cover Over Welfare Merger & Rankin [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PA0105/S00059.htm


Scoop World: No Peace Yet But Lots Of Rain

– Scoop’s Supercomputer forecasts of rain in Israel (Supercomputer Weather: Peace Rains In Middle East? [1] ) have proved correct though a great deal more rain (40 times as much) fell than was expected in the Scoop forecast. That said there are few signs yet of peace breaking out in Israel and the occupied territories with ongoing violence accompanying a visit by Israel’s Foreign Minister Shimon Peres to Washington. See Heavy spring rains bring havoc – Jerusalem Post [2] for a report of flooding in Jerusalem.

Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport

Few sights are sadder in international diplomacy than seeing an aging figure desperate for honours. In a desperate effort to net them, he scurries around, cultivating, prodding, wishing to be noted.
