Thank you Catherine. I have crocheted them something nice.
It's a Scold's Bridle, in True Blue.
But as the ads say - "I think I need Something More..."

Jason - please do not try to dissuade me from my mission. I am the Cultural
Terminator. I (and many others) have been annointed by Mr Bolt. Ask yourself
how many weirdo foreigners get their novels published in English. Havent a few
of these weirdos even won the Booker Prize? Have you understood nothing about
the scourge of political correctness? 

Please try to understand the crisis neoconservative commentators are struggling
alert us to. And be a little bit more sensitive to their marginalised position.
What's their platform? Sure they pretty much dominate the opinion pages of the
Australian, the Sydney Morning Herald, every Murdoch paper in Australia, and
commercial talkback radio and a lot of television by default. But how often do
they get invited to give a lecture to undergraduates in cultural studies? So
please stop your elitist carping. So this Xmas, give a little thought to how
lonely it must be out there on the margins for neo-conservatives. Crochet them
something nice.

is there not a relevant distinction to be made between Western Culture and
(human) civilisation? The former seems to hate itself well enough already, but
I'm all for the latter. Please don't end it Catharine.
