    I’ve just found a quotation in wikipedia, in the article on the Krag rifle. A century ago the US marines sang a little song about the Philipino, including the lines “Underneath the starry flag/Civilize them with a Krag”.

  2. Anybody else a little disturbed by the appointment of Janet “Skanky Ho” Albrechtsen to the board of the ABC?

    David Marr but be spontaneously hurling his breakfast this morn.
