Loch Ard Gorge arch collapsed

Interesting to see the news report Luther forwarded me today about the arch shown in the below photo from my 2008 Great Ocean Road trip collapsing. Kinda nice to see the “what happened after” for places we've travelled. At least this time there was no-one on the island when the arch in the middle collapsed!

Onward, Christian soldiers!

Anyone who thought that Bush's speechwriter's slip in referring to the Middle-Eastern invasions as a “Crusade” was just a poor choice of words and nothing more significant might be interested to see GQ's collection of title pages from Donald Rumsfeld's defence briefings – featuring proud photos of tanks, missile launches, soldiers praying etc., superimposed bible quotes supposedly backing their invasions (“thou shalt not kill” is needless to say not one of them). Not really the kind of thing that should be appearing in top-level state military advice.
