The singing aficionados here will know of whom I speak—Jerry Hadley, a very fine tenor, whom I had the pleasure to meet and hear at the 1995 Mario Lanza Ball in Philadelphia.

In my article, Seven Deadly Sins (Linz Sinz), I listed seven character traits whose practitioners occupy the lowest rung of hell in my personal cosmology—gratuitous and premature umbrage-taking in this, the Age of Umbrage; dilettantism; solipsism; cowardice; the misuse of humour; “Attention Deficit Disorder”; and hypocrisy.

Sorry about doing this yet again, but as the conference date conflicts with my upcoming radio gig Kelly and I have decided to postpone SOLOC 5. I suggested carrying on without me but in the end we both decided it would be better to wait. We'll put Kelly's groundwork to good use in Atlanta in due course. Stay tuned. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Click here for the full constitution.
When in the course of human affairs it becomes necessary for citizens to break the political chains that have hitherto bound them, and to reclaim the individual sovereignty which is their birthright, it can be opportune for them to declare the causes which have impelled them to self-liberation. We, the freedom-loving citizens of New Zealand, choose to do so at this epoch-making moment.

The Aussie Wallabies gave the Kiwi All Blacks a lesson in KASS tonight, coming back from a first-half deficit to win by 21 points to 15. The Aussies played like SOLOists, the ALL Blacks like a combined ARI-KASSless Society side.

The Socialist Republic of Aotearoa-New Zealand's descent into full-blown tyranny, fresh from its straitjacketing of journalists, cameramen and photographers covering proceedings in the Republic's Reichstag, accelerated further today with the announcement by Associate Health Minister Adolf Anderton that BZP, the active ingredient in party pills, will be made illegal from next year.

From: Lindsay Perigo, Founder and Principal, Sense of Life Objectivists; libertarian broadcaster; former member, Parliamentary Press Gallery.
What do ACT's pretend-libertarian Rodney Hide, United Future's ideological slut-on-skateboards Peter Dunne, Labour's Thief-in-Chief Michael Cullen, the Greens' ban-everything-except-marijuana Nandor Tanczos and National's push-'em-down-the-stairs-if-they-disagree Gerry Brownlee have in common?

SOLO has been in cruise mode for some time now, not to mention bruise mode from some of the pitched battles that have gone on. The bruising will no doubt continue, given the open, pan-factional and uncensored nature of the board, and the cruising is fine as far as it goes, but it doesn't go far enough.

My guest commentary in the current edition of the New Zealand Centre for Political Research newletter, published by former ACT MP Muriel Newman.
I can’t be sure, but it may well have been me who introduced the term “Nanny State” into the New Zealand vernacular, on my Politically Incorrect Show on Radio Pacific.

Like many of you I was saddened at the departure of my friend James Valliant from SOLO. I've been in touch with him and Casey Fahy privately looking for a way to settle the dispute between us in a way that doesn't compromise either side or threaten to put a dampener on the robustness of debate that goes on here at SOLO.

I snuk out an hour or so ago to grab a bottle of Yellow Tail from the nearby dairy. Sporting a Mario Lanza T-shirt and a pair of baggy shorts with my knobbly knees showing, I figured I probably looked even more eccentric than usual. But it was dark and I thought I'd get away with it without frightening the horses or triggering a civil emergency.
