Happy Ausday, to one and all!!! If we had a discussion column, I could have mentioned it there, instead of intruding in a column for other things. Oh, well….
There are fewer than 10 spots left for this event, so if you want to come then you’d better act fast.
A great line up of speakers.
As an added inducement, if you’re a male, you might meet that libertarian cutie who made the news a while back in a protest march. I remember making comments on these pages about her, though I’ve now forgotten her name.
Hope the dinner goes well! Please tell all about it afterwards.
