Today's issue of MX* had a long letter from someone that was whinging 
about having to vote for Gillard or Abbott and blaming the lack of a 
third option on Natash Stott-Despoja. What the? I doubt very much if 
this person lives in BOTH Julia's AND Tony's electorate. And if he 
did, he'd be committing fraud if he voted twice, wouldn't he? So 
consider the myth continued and reinforced to the commuting public of 
Victoria. Sad, really.

the train going home)

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.
