And if the Canberra leaders and minions haven't figured that out 
after this past week, they should all be sacked! What a mess! It's 
ironic that gov 2.0 was going on yesterday in the same building where 
the Parliament was debating a situation that could easily bring down 
leaders based on lack of control of govt communications. I don't know 
if that increases the need or scares the Parliamentary horses even more.

My theory: Godwin did it.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
