Thinking of Linking

This week I have been mostly reading...

Italian navy chief sceptical of Australian asylum seeker solution to Mediterranean migrant crisis

Really Mr Abbott? $185k not 'especially high'?

Treasurer Joe Hockey: the man who knew to mulch

Message from the Vice-Chancellor on the Australian Consensus Centre

Sophie wants to stand for Libs in Indi

Universities 'censor' bad ideas all the time, Tim Wilson. It's called learning  "You don’t get to have your ideas heard just because you really like them, because you say them over and over again, or because you’ve got powerful friends in the government."

Joe Hockey no ‘phantom Treasurer’, says PM

Budget Night, A Bear's Perspective 

Watch out: this is a booby-trapped budget

Here lies Tony Abbott, a feminist

Stupidity of Abbott and Hockey indicates they have not learnt from mistakes of last year's budget

George Brandis' extraordinary raid of the Australia Council

Johnny Depp's dogs: the war on terrier hides the battle elsewhere It takes a special ability to make the case for the importance of quarantine and still come out looking like the bigger arsehole. Quarantine is essential. Being a dick about it is optional.

"Blair later berated himself as “a naive, foolish, irresponsible nincompoop” for introducing [the Freedom of Information Act]."

America live in Melbourne

The Edge falls off edge of stage mid-song as band begin world tour

The Blockheads: Beyond the Call of Dury

'Simpsons' Mr. Burns walking away from $14 million deal

The death of the political interview?

The death of the political interview 

Habitat 67, Montreal's 'failed dream'

"Creep" shamed on Facebook was actually man taking selfie with Darth Vader Think of this before piling on in any social media shaming campaign

I got stupid on me and I need to wipe it off on you:
Jeb Bush didn't say Apple Watches should replace Obamacare. He said something weirder.

House Republican: Pope should stay out of politics But you're still cool with nutcakes like Pat Robertson, right?

The least boring photo on my camera roll:
