Dude - this guy is one of us.  He's not a punk-ass rich kid from a powerful political dynasty, like, yeah, you know who.

What's different about him?  Well, just take a look at the picture, he's saying "I work for you."

I don't envy him though, as he is inheriting the biggest flocking mess in the world - left by, uh, yeah, you know who.

Ned Kelly's Helmet

I saw Ned Kelly last night, staring Heath Ledger.

It was really cool seeing the Australian landscape around Victoria, and also the cockatoos, kangaroos, and wombat's (didn't actually see a wombat, but they were eating wombat stew...)

The helmet (at left) was part of Ned Kelly's home made iron armour made from heating plow shares and hammering them to shape around a green log.

During his last stand against the 100 or so coppers, he donned his armour and walked straight at them while firing his weapons.  The dents in the helmet were made by bullets is my guess, must have really rung his ears...
