You know the real conspiracy here is not that some bird has had dancing lessons, but why this information has come out in the lead up to the finale. Anyone smell bat ratings on a dieing genre??
When driving in an overtaking lane, do you:

It looks like Limewire will be the next target of Hollywood and the Recording Industry. This software allows you to download illegal music! Fancy that! Anyway, in come the lawyers, and if all things go to plan it will be shut down and illegal downloads will magically stop (or won't).
So what's next then? Hey look, I can download illegal music using Firefox! Oh yeah, and Internet Explorer too! Why haven't they gone after these guys? Surely criminals are going unpunished buy using this software illegally!
Quick, where are my lawyers.....
I've spoken before about the virtues of using Nuclear Power. Personally I think it's a great alternative to Oil and Coal based products, is much cleaner (despite the hype) and Australia is in a position where supplies of this abound.
One important point that Peter Garret pointed out is that nuclear power is simply a smokescreen to avoid tacking energy issues in general. As good a nuclear power is, we still need to looks at cleaner and better alternatives, such as wind and solar power. Without these technologies, we are still restricted to a single limited resource, be it oil, uranium or coal.
Don't be scared of nuclear power, it's not the great evil many people would have you believe, but don't let the government pretend that it's the answer either. We need to free ourselves of resource based energy....
