The Times on why the Pope was right [via Hemi Kingi]

And I’m in bed, ill, writing on my blog. This is what it takes to get me to write some words not links. Perhaps I can generate some boring I mean interesting discussion by saying something controversial. The “is Peter Davis a homo” “issue” means that you shouldn’t watch TV or read the newspaper anymore. You know I haven’t really got anything to say. I’m supposed to be finishing Prism 4 layout, or formatting a forestry industry newsletter for the web, or producing some webstats, or quoting for a small WAP app, or starting a publishing company, but I think I’ll stay in bed instead. People who live with chronic pain, man, I can’t imagine it, God bless them. Goodnight.

    get well soon, Matt.

    Just had a cold myself – sore throat, irritating dry cough, headche – the works.

    Hurray for ibuprofen and cough syrup (and hot lemon juice with honey and whiskey!!)


  3. Why does Davidgate mean I should I stop reading the paper? I thought the DomP at least has been pretty nice about the whole thing.

  4. Jono says:

    Ill add to the controversy by saying that we should also stop looking at photos of men pashing.

    Get well soon!

  5. Matthew says:

    Thanks for the well wishing.

    Re. 3: Because it’s a pretend issue. I watched some news clip at the Flinns, maybe TV1, and it was reporting on what some newspaper was reporting that Investigate magazine might soon print. But back to the rugger/Paris’ boobs.

  6. okay so you mean its reason to stop watching TVone news and reading the Herald? Consider it done.

    seems to me that the Dom Post has spent most of this week publishing nice big front page colour photos of Don Brash/Don Brash & wife etc any chance they got.

    And as for you, Bartlett: suck it up :P

    I disagree. For one thing, I smiled at her on Sunday and she smiled back.

  9. Helen Clark is easily the best PM we ever had.

  10. Tim says:

    If you don’t like Christians Helen Clark is definitely the best PM ever.

  11. a.t. says:

    if you smiled at me I’d have smiled back too.

    She was probably just coughing up a fur ball
