PUBLIC ADDRESS 14/12/07 - An embarrassment of riches

Nurturing Capitalism | Dec 14, 2007 10:39
Russell Brown's Hard News

What with being personally responsible for blogosphere diversity and the fate of The Left, as well as fangin' it on my new Broil King barbecue, I have rather carelessly neglected to try and sell you anything. Well, It's Business Time … Because it's Christmas, and nothing says you care like...,

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.
