So what would break me out of all of that and and lead me back to the blog? Why, the funniest story for decades of course, the one which brings an instant smile to my face with every new day's revelations - the crashing and burning of brand Murdoch (and potentially his empire)!
While there are plenty of others writing about what has to be the best and biggest spectator sport on earth at present, I'm currently particularly enjoying watching the developing blood-lust in (all but Murdoch) media's reportage of the action - it's sort of like watching Frankenstein's monster feeding on the corpse of the dead Doctor.
And of course then there's the Murdoch press reportage of the biggest media story for decades. And what better example is there of the Empire's commitment to truth and balance that our very own Townsville Bulletin?
Their coverage of the crisis engulfing their Empire over the last few days?

Surely there's nothing more pathetic than watching this blimp on the periphery of The Empire desperately protecting it's little patch while Rome burns. And burns and burns and burns.
