|The rain remains, at 6.12am|
Briefly, at my politics lecture immediately following the session with Mr Palmer, I ask my students what they thought. There is a healthy mix of appreciation for watching him 'live' but also scepticism in his advice for journalists. A good opportunity for the students I think.
|Tutes, at 6.12pm|
There's a bit more work to do after that and eventually I leave about 10.00pm. I don't know what I did to have these long days.
After a pause at the Caboolture service station, it's back on the road which is a bit wet and slippery with rain. On the way home I see what looks like a rather nasty accident on the other side of the highway. Turns out it was a fatal. Young driver, stolen car, speed, rain... Generally, I'm quite comfortable driving home at night, it is safer than daytime. But the accidents and stupid driving happen all too regularly. It is times like this I do wish we had the sort of public transport system (trains) that I'm used to in Japan.
