all right

Occasionally adding corroborative details to add verisimilitude to otherwise bald and unconvincing,
but veridicous accounts
with careful attention, indefatigable assiduity, and nice discrimination.

A Simple Rule

“Here’s a simple rule:  if you think one news source is unbiased, and another one is biased, it means you aren’t aware of your own biases.
“If you think one person’s disrespect is ‘speaking truth to power’ but another person’s is just impolite, it means the disrespect isn’t what’s bothering you.”—Charlie Martin, PJ Tatler.

If the supposedly hateful “sexist misogyny” of Hon. Tony Abbott, the Leader of the Opposition, offend you whilst the hateful sexism of our duplicitous Prime minister, Hon. Julia Gillard, cause no similar offence, then it’s not the sexism which irks you.
