Australian President John Howard's address to parliament and the senators rude interjection struck some familiar chords in the bush. There was something about George W. Bush's address which was very comforting, very easy, very familiar, even before he spoke, even while he reeled off the list of dignitaries and politicians. A description of the marvellous efforts made by Rotary during its current big project. The last time he wasn't was when the branch voted to build some sheltered seating at the oval for our senior lacrosse enthusiasts, and your father noted that the president owned the hardware store, and also supplied timber to the district. When that prize dill Bob Brown started issuing duck calls from the cheap seats, one rather hoped he'd be querying the equitable nature of Australia dropping its few remaining tariffs.
