It is customary to say something about oneself. I think I will leave the process of disclosure to the accretion of future entries, though I might as well announce my particular interests. These are, in no particular order: law, music, opera, gay issues, and China. I am forty-something, and live in Sydney.
The title of the blog is arbitrary, save that it is a burr which has stuck in me from my literary education. You can google it if you wish. For good measure, I have pursued the association in my username, allowing for one of my most frequent typing errors.
