Bad news for Tigers, better news for Garrett

I wish I hadn't heard it.
I woke up this morning, switched on 2GB 873 live online, and heard Shaun Kenny-Dowall score on an intercepted pass as the SYDNEY ROOSTERS beat the WESTS TIGERS, 19-15 in extra time, capping a remarkable NATIONAL RUGBY LEAGUE FINALS comeback from 15-2 down.

Dammit. I support the Tigers.

Ah well. There's better news for fans of MIDNIGHT OIL (of which I am also one, having seen the Aussie band live in concert).

Former front man PETER GARRETT (pictured) has retained his cabinet place in the new government of PRIME MINISTER JULIA GILLARD. Garrett was named minister for schools, early childhood and youth.

Garrett ran into trouble in his last cabinet position -- an environmental post -- when a home insulation scheme he supported failed badly. Hopefully he'll have more success in his new role.

Hopefully the Tigers have more success next week, when they'll face elimination in the NRL's remarkably complicated finals system.
