TIME magazine art critic Robert

TIME magazine art critic Robert Hughes has been fined $2,500 for causing a massive car accident in Australia while driving on the wrong side of the road.

Not mentioned much during his trial: the reason Hughes had returned to Australia from his New York home was to campaign for a republic. It didn't help his cause that he'd been away so long he couldn't remember what side of the road Australians drive on.
