And We've Got a Bridge For Sale, Too!

Seems that the UN might pull out of Australia. It's thinking of closing its Sydney headquarters as a cost-saving measure. I'm thinking this would be a golden opportunity for Sydney to immeasurably enhance its prestige, and for New York to get rid of a thorn in its side.

So all you New Yorkers run right over to that link and post something like, "Please, please Br'er Australia! Don't you be takin' my UN away from me! Please don't do it!" Heh heh heh heh! Suckers!

(On the other hand, judging from the letters from the Australians, the imminent pullout is not causing many tears. I was in despair for them until I read the letter from Beavis of Brisbane, who worries that the UN will no longer "provide the checks and balances to the current federal government." Thaaat's right, honey. Your fellow citizens don't know the first thing about democracy---that's why they elected that government. You need the unelected, unaccountable UN to show you all how to be.)
