DogBitingMen Digest – 17 December 2004

DogBitingMen Digest – 17 December 2004

A regular update from DogBitingMen: DogBitingMen is home to Mediacow, David W Young, Olivia Kember, Ben Thomas, and Mr Neil Falloon.

Sedation to Conspiracy

Neil Falloon and MediaCow try and untangle the charges of “seditious conspiracy” against Aucklander Tim Selwyn, following a November hatchet job by “concerned pakeha” on the Prime Minister’s electorate office.

Deathray of Sunshine

Ben Thomas wrote that the house he moved into in late 2000 no longer stunk of death. That’s because his flatmates had cleaned the blood off the walls and the tree limbs from which the previous tenant hanged himself had been removed.

Open Invitation for a Bottling

Olivia Kember questioned how Scribe, a role model and, according to the Listener, the twenty third most powerful New Zealander could do what he did… before losing interest and meditating on the nature of hip hop.

Finding A Role Model
David W Young wrote that in the late 1970’s, Alan Ivory helped torpedo a Bill by a well meaning conservative to legalise homosexual sex only for men over the age of 21 in private. History proved he was right to insist on equality or nothing.
Riddled with Pathologies

Mr Neil Falloon wrote that ACT MP Stephen Franks is just as smart as people allege. Talking with him in the wake of Select Committee hearings on the Civil Unions Bill in September can be daunting – his mind is not like a steel trap, but it is like a swiss army knife.
