I'd rather play to bullshit academic expectations and produce something intelligent than write dross to go with a catchy headline that will sell papers.
I hated that about journalism.

But seriously, how can not having Cyan ink render it impossible to print?
i say use oil instead of black ink

that's crazy. i hate when printers do that. you should just be able to override it and print in greyscale.

Well, I suppose a central part of why late 19th century Kiwi history matters is because of the whole thing about how we gave women the vote first. I think the social origins of that have been grossly under-studied and can tell us a lot of interesting things about how and why these movements happen, and why it was replicated all over the world. The most interesting part is that by the mid-1890s, New Zealand women's organisations were advocating ideas that pretty much did not appear elsewhere until the second wave of feminism in the 1960s.

Of course, once you open the paper you realise it's Helen Clark, but by then you've already paid.

Though given Helen has a deeper voice than half the men I know, maybe that IS a scandal.
