Hmmm.. I'd never heard the bit about Mark Webber campaigning against speed limits... Anyone care to fill us uneducated yanks in?

Plastic parents! Plastic children!

Every year, Formula One rule-makers introduce laws to slow cars down

Should they work for the Victorian government?

and vehicles be formed from four-tonne blocks of uranium

Which kind? Regular, depleted or enriched?

At one building, the Turkish flag flew only a few floors beneath the flag of Israel. Neither country was represented in the race.

Team Turkey were barred as officials thought the car was made out of plastic. The Israeli team said they were from the capital, and all sporting federations know that Israel has no capital.

Re Tandberg, is there a less talented, less unbiased, less amusing cartoonist in this country (Leunig aside of course)? Petty may be Leftist but his cartoons are undeniably funny. Over the Christmas break I remember thinking The Age had somehow improved, then realised it was because Tandberg was on holiday.
