Dateline (Down Under) - Why I Like Aussies

News from our friends Down Under ranges from the sublime to the ridiculous! First the sublime! Kudos to Dr. Fiona Wood, Australian of the Year. Those Aussies really know how to pick a celebrity. Good on you, Mates!

Now the ridiculous from tsunami ravaged Thailand where the tourists are back in party mode

“Police said 40 passengers had been travelling on the overloaded boat when it capsized a few kilometres from Koh Samui.
The travellers had been to the huge party held every month on the beach at Haad Rin in Koh Phangan, which draws tens of thousands of partygoers to the island in peak season.
"The cause of the accident was likely that the boat was overloaded, because it was not allowed to carry more than 30 passengers," Colonel Bandid Tungkaseni, commander of Surat Thani marine police, said.”
