(And now the hard-of-thinking people whinge that I’m pro-whaling. I’m not. But it’s not as clear-cut as “Japan bad, Sea Shepherd good”.)

@franksting The Aust Whale Sanctuary is just a claim by Australia, shaky legally. http://is.gd/kozU Japan argues it’s not legally valid.

Mon plan: A desk day, sorting through a thousand loose ends, with little excitement; evening gym & dinner w@SnarkyPlatypusypus, probably.

@Ilaeria Bah! Tell your “friend” that they’re capable of getting to the airport on their own. Airports are not that complicated.

@YiyingLu This isn’t particularly early for me. I’m usually up between 0500 and 0600.

@clutterbells Yass on Wednesday will be fairly brief. (See itinerary earlier.) We’re all adults, so no lame “ass” jokes. Probably.

@TerrorTV You’re making the same mistake as Clive Hamilton, imagining there’s “the people” as a homogeneous blob. Nuance, pls!

@firstdogonmoon You should always wear pants while drawing Peter Costello. Even you. He might be watching.

@davesag The Canberra itinerary will emerge at http://stilgherrian.com but it’s already a fairly packed schedule.

@jonseymour @afficionados_hh @davesag @crazybrave I recall seeing bits of it at the time, long enough ago now for it to be reasonably fresh.

Watching the BAFTA-winning 1985 series “Edge of Darkness” http://is.gd/kqBY with @ApostrophePong. It’s very good. Hence the BAFTAs, I guess.

via Twitter Web Client

@rbuerckner Well, @ApostrophePongand I are omnivorous. No prefs. @kcarruthers?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rbuerckner

@rbuerckner It’ll be me, @ApostrophePong, @kcarruthers definitely. @Nickhodge maybe. @mpesce may have to do a “VIP” thing with @JoeTrippi.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rbuerckner

@rbuerckner Hmmm… Interview in Yass 1500, finish 1600. Explore a bit 1700. Arrive CBR 1745 check in. So drinks 1815 or 1830 then dinner?

Also another warning: “Stilgherrian Live Road Trip to Yass” is this Wednesday from 0930 to 1800-ish Sydney time. Links to come tomorrow.

RT @ApostrophePong: @stub trivia Tue 10 March at The Duke, Enmore, I propose.

@TerrorTV BTW, I don’t know what you mean about “my trust in Rudd” or how you inferred that. He’s a politician. I trust none of them.

@ForsakenDAemon My piece about Clive Hamilton http://is.gd/jFpn is rather aggressive, yes, but the situation has escalated over a year.

@kcarruthers @ApostrophePong Aren’t we having a SEKRIT MEETING in Yass? Canberra? Parliament House?

via Twitter Web Client

@TerrorTV Your woolly arguments fail to sway my opinion that Sea Shepherd is a bunch of adrenalin-junkie pirates pursuing a poor strategy.

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong @kcarruthers See, that’s a MUCH better place for SEKRIT MEETINGZ than a Fortress of Solitude! http://is.gd/kq2P

@TerrorTV Your argument confuses “some” with “all”, and I’m not particularly a journalist. Claiming moral high ground doesn’t excuse crime.
