Hey, academics! Did you know that if you contribute a single chapter to a collection, you are actually a co-author of the entire book? That's what Australia's Immigration Minister thinks, anyway. Could that guy be any more of a joke? The way he handled the Dr Mohamed Haneef case was and continues to be laughably inept, and now he just looks totally silly. Really, the entire Howard government is a joke. I wish Howard would hurry up and call the election already. I'm picking it will take place on 3 November, the last Saturday before the Reserve Bank meets.

Oh, and something more positive for everyone in Australia: make sure you're looking at the sky this evening, because there will be a total lunar eclipse, though those of us in Melbourne may get screwed by clouds. Let's hope not!
