Goodbye Friend

13 January 2009

It's hard to believe that in a few short days, George W. Bush will be no more than a foot (in mouth) note of history.

Like all outgoing presidents, he's determined to stake out his legacy. In his final press conference, Bush has described the regrets of his presidency, which include not finding WMDs in Iraq.

Really? You're sorry that Saddam didn't have chemical, biological and nuclear weapons lying around? Makes me think that, as so often with The Onion, this isn't a joke. (Except to Bush).


Back in Sydney, from the "well, duh" files: publicans are reporting that the new alcohol lockdowns are causing an increase in violence. When people are turned out of hotels early, and/or refused entry when they may be perfectly acceptable by RSA laws just because of the time, they're not going to go straight home. All those people on the streets at once will cause trouble. Other ridiculous laws include only serving alcohol in disposable plastic cups (hello drink spiking!) and - this would be my favourite if it wasn't so condescending - not serving alcohol for ten minutes an hour, every hour. If anyone can explain the logic behind this to me in a way that makes sense, I'll buy you all you can drink in a venue of your choice, between 1:00 and 1:50am one night.
