As you might expect, the Labor Leadership imbroglio generated a fair bit of visual material. This is one example that came via Lynne. It originally came from the NT News Facebook page.

Staying with Facebook, have you noticed the "sponsored" ads? This quite funny story will tell you more.

In Canada, it is two hundred years since the War of 1812. It seems that nobody is quite sure how to commemorate it. Hat tip to Christopher Moore on this one.

By contrast, Professor Marilyn Lake considers that Australians find it all too easy (and historically distorting) to celebrate this country's military past. I agree.

So far, I have only had a chance to skim read the Gonski report into Australian school funding. The thing I noticed first was the further extension of a variety of user pays. By contrast, Bronwyn Hinz focuses on the implications of the report in a Federal context.

I have to be at work very early today, so that's all for now.
