Sleepy Mosman

Early thoughts on the Mosman 'bomb' incident last night:

1) If you are unfamiliar with the story, do not search for "18 year old girl strapped to device". You won't find what you are looking for.

2) Police officer Mark Murdoch was a good old fashioned walloper. Quite a contrast to Christine Nixon. Even before her Victorian Bushfire failure, she always seemed like the sort of cop who would struggle to catch a criminal running up a flight of stairs.

The Force needs more like him and fewer like her.

3) Murdoch was fairly clear about what he could and couldn't say, but left the door open to further questions from journos on scene. They seemed to completely miss the openings and ask unrelated banal questions instead.

4) That poor 18 year old girl couldn't get onto Facebook or Twitter for over 8 hours. The horror. Still, it's one way to get out of studying for your HSC exams.

5) Speaking of Facebook, it's interesting the number of media outlets who have been laying the boot into News Corporation lately, yet have no problem using Facebook images of the victim, Madeleine Pulver. Facebook is owned by News Corporation.

6) Idiots on Twitter are already attacking Rupert Murdoch (personally) because some News Corp papers are daring to show the outside of the house where it took place or give background on the family. Pathetic.

Correction: Facebook isn't owned by Newscorp. Myspace is.

For the record News corp owns MySpace, not Facebook.

LEADERSHIP, that's what it's about. You look up to your leaders and draw inspiration from them.

Not, "Hey I couldn't catch 'The Zimmerframe Bandit' with a helicopter patrol and the address of his nursing home either, but I too could be Chief Commissioner one day!"

I'm wondering why the sniffer dogs didn't give some indication there were no explosives present... Bad dogs!

It will be interesting to see how Lieutenant FailDan changes this now that he's been pinged in a huge self-pwn by a reader.

Do you mean never make a change and never allow comments disputing something like Ant or do you mean as furtively as Jez changes his posts when caught out in a mistake?

I look forward to more of Jez's self obsessed bride posting horror photos on her blog "(I) eat everything" or everyday. Or something. Gruesomely self indulgent. I wish someone would correct that
