KEEP the Grand Final, Melbourne. The Bunyipmobile is heading north for a few days, tent and rod packed, because it seems a good idea to get out of town. If Collingwood loses, domestic fury and fierce civil strife shall cumber all the banks of Yarra land*. And if Geelong loses, the ABC investigations of mass suicides amongst the underpriveleged, socially alienated, economically disempowered welfare recipients in Corio will be just be as bad. Plus, the east coast is being invaded by rugby -besotted Kiwis, so it is a good moment to be on the road.
Posting will resume sometime next week.
(NOTE TO JUDGE MORDY: Bunyips are entitled to use "walkabout" without legal risk. )
