Actress Cate Blanchett is among Kevin Rudd’s heroic summiteers:
The 38-year-old will chair a discussion group on the theme “Towards a Creative Australia” at the 2020 summit planned by prime minister Kevin Rudd in April …
Mr Rudd said she was one of many “creative individuals in their own right, with ideas to contribute”.
Blanchett shouldn’t be too generous; she needs some ideas herself. For one, how to reverse a ten per cent decline in subscriptions at the debt-wracked theatre company she bought. Be creative, Cate! Maybe you could sign up the nation’s summit-fevered children to present Summit on Ice!, Summit: The Musical, or Summitdance:
In an effort to spread the pre-summit fever, the Minister for Education, Julia Gillard, said on Sunday that all primary and secondary schools would be invited to host their own summits before the Canberra event.
Hey, kids! Here’s an idea that might win Prime Ministerial approval: instead of driving cars, how about we all live in them?

UPDATE. Reader Steve submits a Grease-inspired summit tune:
Kevin: Summit lovin’, had me a blast
Cate: Summit lovin’, happened so fast
Kevin: I met a girl crazy for me
Cate: Met a boy cute as can be
Both: Summit days driftin’ away, to, oh, those summit nights …
