A poetry slam

PREMIER Mike Rann has vowed to remain accessible to voters, a day after being attacked and repeatedly struck about the head with a tightly rolled magazine by a man at a Labor Party fundraiser in Adelaide...

With obvious bruises on his face from the attack, Mr Rann yesterday said he had never met his alleged assailant and promised he would not be changing his habits because of the incident, adding it was not the first physical attack he had experienced.

"It's happened to me a couple of times before -- once at a poetry reading in 1994 and then again at a football club a few years ago," he said.

Don't mess with poets! They're just as bad as football supporters!

From the same paper: 'Kevin Rudd has decided not to meet the Dalai Lama on his forthcoming visit to Australia.'

Rudd should visit Australia more often. He might manage to fit in time to see the Dalai Lama, who, for all I know from that article, lives here.
