Bob Ellis thinks Fats Domino was left to drown in New Orleans.

    1. Oh, sure, Fats Domino was easy. Bush just borrowed comrade Putin’s hurricane maker and whipped up a disaster in New Orleans. But what inquiring minds want to know is, how did Bush get to Rick James?

    1. No, he left Barry Cowsill to drown.  But I guess one of the boys from the singing Cowsill family, the bunch the Partridge Family was modelled on; just doesn’t count.

    1. In related news, His Holiness, the Reverend Al Sharpton, and His Excellency, Major Owens (D-NY), are attempting to cast Bush in the Michael Caine role from “Hurry Sundown”, claiming that the President used the levees in the same way that Bull Connor used fire hoses against blacks in the early ‘60’s. Major Owens, for those haven’t heard, once declared in a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives that a hundred million blacks perished on the journey from Africa to America, and that so many of the dead were thrown overboard that, TO THIS DAY, sharks still follow the routes taken by the slave ships (perhaps on the slight chance that a Jamaican steward will tumble off a cruise ship). Madness on stilts . . .

    1. Perhaps Bob attended the Southern Cross University advertised on the same page of the esteemed Byron Shire Echo.

      Motto, “Southern Cross University, A new way to think”.

      “A new way to perceive reality” might be more apt.

    1. Quoth Ellis: “everyone raping and murdering eight year olds”.

      Bob, seek some professional help mate.

      And to think he has the temerity to give Cornelia Rau advice, let alone the rest of society!

    1. Keerist! Bob Ellis? Australia’s many time winner of the ‘Creep of the Year’ award is still alive? Damn, I could have sworn that we drove the stake through the right spot in the chest wall. Must of been environmentally friendly timber – or maybe the garlic was a bit off. Personally, I blame the medical establishment – this liver cirrhosis thingy is not all that it’s cracked up to be.
      Note to diary: send Ellis another three cases of cheap whisky – that should do it!

    1. Bob Ellis – down to his last brain cell, and he’s not using it for thought.

    1. Bob Ellis thinks…..

      I’ve yet to see any evidence of that!!!!

    1. Ellis moved north from my part of Sydney to escape the rat race. Perhaps the good burghers of Byron Shire could persuade him to move a little further north? The middle of the Torres Trait is nice this time of the year…. fulls of crocs, too. We might get lucky!!

    1. Or Bundaberg. If the rum or the crocs don’t finish you, the local hospital is on standby.

    1. On the next … Oprah.

      “More than a hundred people drowned in Hurricane Katrina.  The good news: None of them were celebrities.”

    1. Shit.  I didn’t realize all of those looters had crippled mothers to feed.  I feel kinda bad now.  They were just taking home some “TV dinners” for poor crippled momma.

    1. “Writer Charles Amann said he last spoke to Domino on Sunday, and the singer refused to join the evacuation that was then under way.’’

      Sorry but that was a really, really stupid thing to do.  He’s lucky he got a second chance.

    1. There’s a reason he’s not called “Brains” Domino.

    1. The bit I like is Ellis’s recipe for moral government: ‘Bob Hawke proved you can be forgiven anything if you admit it, weep, and say you’ll try to be a better person in future.  Had Brogden’s minders slept a bit..’

      Looks like Bob H.’s method was taken up effectively by Bill Clinton’s minders -several times.  Hillary the Healer worked wonders too for years, of course.

      Note for US readers:  Former Oz PM Hawke divorced his only wife quickly for a much younger journalist, but has never wept over it in public.

    1. Well, it was a natural mistake.  They thought Domino was just Michael Moore Cajun style…
