Another one bites the dust...hah!


Personally I would have liked to have seen him convicted for Halabja, the war against Iran and the invasion of Kuwait etc before being hanged. But given the ineptitude of the Hague in convicting Slobodan Miloservic, I understand the Iraqi wish to hang him as soon as possible.

Pinochet dies: a nation mourns

Christ College's high fees finally worth it!

A female teacher at a prestigious Canterbury school has left under a cloud after declaring an "inappropriate relationship" with a student.

Christ's College principal Simon Leese yesterday confirmed the teacher had resigned after disclosing her relationship with an 18-year-old student.


Places at the private secondary school are sought after, with fees of more than $12,000 a year.

And I thought New Zealand was rugby-mad...

The Fijian Army is delaying their semi-coup (Which would make it Coup 3.5 so to speak) in order to play a game of rugby against the Police. To extend Marx's series, the first time* is tragedy, the second time is farce and the third time surrealism.

*If you are wondering about the discrepancy in the numbering, Rabuka lauched two coups during the "first time".
