No surprises here

 

Reading the morning news, I larn that in Dallas a distraught woman complained that a three-year-old child kept biting her Great Dane, that a Canadian mobile Red Cross unit took blood from a Mr A. Stone, and that a man had his first bath at the age of sixty-seven (no. it wasn't me!).

I also read that Labor politician Mr Obeid and former minister Eric Roozendaal have been suspended from the Labor Party over corruption allegations made at ICAC (Independent Commission Against Corruption) inquiries.

But that's not news, is it? I mean, you can't blame a politician for being corrupt any more than you can blame a frog for being green. A thing can only be what it is.
