Ryan Brown-Haysom - left-leaning arse-licker, Auckland
Monday, November 29, 2004

Dear Pastors Bev and Peter, and Mr Adams, Greetings!

I read in the North Shore Times and the Sunday Star-Times that you have begun a three-week-long fast to protest against ''the moral slide of our nation'', and may I congratulate you on your decision. At first I was a bit concerned that fasting sounds a bit - well, a bit Popish really. I mean, one day you're fasting, the next you're eating ashes and flogging yourself with a sack full of broken glass in a public place.

Matt Nippert - Bigger than (the historical) Jesus, Auckland
Saturday, November 27, 2004

Rumors of my multiple mystery personalities have been greatly exaggerated. I inhabit only one body, can barely organise one life, and run only under one name - pseudonyms are for cowards, obscenity peddlers, and those stuck working as mouthpieces for The Man. Lyndon Hood is his Own Man, although I am tempted to appropriate his name, and location for that matter. With my sweater on, prowling through Epuni with my homies, I'd be "Hood the hooded hood". Killah. All you can do with Nippert is "Nippert's on the buds."

May I have your attention please?
May I have your attention please?
Will the real Matt Nippert please stand up?
I repeat, will the real Matt Nippert please stand up?
We're gonna have a problem here.

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

It hasn’t been much fun at all to see how “war on drugs in sport” has become a proxy version of the Cold War, fixated on Russia. This weekend’s banning of the Russian long jumper Darya Klishina took that fixation to fresh extremes. More>>

Binoy Kampmark: Kevin Rudd’s Failed UN Secretary General Bid

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.

Ramzy Baroud: Being Black Palestinian - Solidarity As A Welcome Pathology

It should come as no surprise that the loudest international solidarity that accompanied the continued spate of the killing of Black Americans comes from Palestine; that books have already been written and published by Palestinians about the plight of their Black brethren. In fact, that solidarity is mutual. More>>
