Variety Week

The World's Ugliest Dog has died.

George Best is dying.

The Amazing Race was filming in Freo and Rottnest on Wednesday, and Channel 7 (which screens the show) didn't know a thing about it. Heh.

Star Wreck: In The Pirkinning, a Finnish Star Trek spoof feature, has just become the highest-rating Finnish film ever. And yes, it's very silly. Them funky Finns.

David Hicks could yet be saved by the British.

But it doesn't look like anyone will be able to save Nguyen Van Tuong, despite best intentions.

This week also I learnt about a FOURTH person whose mother has just died in the past couple of weeks, so it's all a bit spooky and sad.

But Bubzilla's going swimmingly. What a world he's got to look forward to.

What? A world without the world's ugliest dog and yet another alcoholic football player? I envy the brat. Unlike us he probably won't have to live with the constant threat of a global thermo-nuclear war. He'll inherit a world that is safer, more prosperous, more tolerant and cleaner. We have a long way to go but we've also improved our world - at least for humanity - since the 60s. He'll also inherit the problems of decreasing bio-diversity and fossil fuel stocks. Perhaps more difficult problems to solve but hardly insurmountable for our child =).
