[-empyre-] dissing the guest list

I think perhaps you didn't read the whole guest list,
here's one we were just introduced to:

"Dr Ben Saul is a Lecturer in the Faculty of Law at
the University of New South Wales, the Director of the
Bill of Rights Project at the
Gilbert + Tobin Centre for Public Law, and an
Associate of the 
Australian Human Rights Centre."

To me, he sounds like someone with an informed
position on the Australian legislation. By the way,
it's not 'proposed' legislation: the bill was
introduced on 03 November and passed into law on 06
December 2005.

Also, for what it's worth, I am very pleased to have
guests reporting to us from the very teeth of the
monster empire.
