Don't be put off by Pure Poison; several Crikey blogs are actually worth reading.

Tim Dunlop returns to blogging with Johnny's in the Basement, where he writes about, "Music for grown-ups who remember when they weren’t".

At Plane Talking Ben Sandilands discusses matters aviational. His series of posts on the disappearance of Air France flight 447 is very informative.

Take a look; be prepared to be pleasantly surprised.

This is a hard one as essentially, most funny satire is in bad taste. Think of the Life of Brian, a great film, cutting, though there are plenty of people who may see it as being in bad taste. In that respect I'm sympathetic with the Chasers. However, Howard was 'little' and a 'rodent' mocked as the 'Prime Miniature'yet can anyone really say that Rudd who lived in a car is unable to supply comedians with worthy material?

The same goes for Bush. called dumb and so on, I'll bet you if Obama was called half of the things comedians called Bush it would be considered racist. Herein lies my point, there is a subjectivity that is applied to comedy that is often unfair/disjointed. What is bad taste in satire?
