* Chris Sheil—an unlikely recruit—joins the spelling police.

Melbourne City Council and the Victorian Health Department are being watched. Good.

* Damian Penny notes a call for tolerance.

Matthew Hayden ponders Sydney gang names.

* James Lileks on napping:

One of those days where I just wait to nap, after which the day will really began. But no nap was forthcoming. I tried once, and had that delicious moment where you realize you are thinking nonsense, and hence are falling asleep (“I said carrots,” I said to someone in the almost-dream, “because there is nothing else to say.”)

I only realised in the past few months or so the exact same thing; random crazy thoughts signal the onset of sleep. Either that or you’re channelling Maureen Dowd.
