Guano Inundates Bird Cage

Great article by Simon Castles about corporate hospitality at the Spring Racing Carnival in this morning's Age. You can read it here.

All I'll say is, I don't mind that the rich, famous and privileged have it better than the rest of us. I just don't see why we have to have our fucking noses rubbed in it.

It's wierd thinking of November as spring- it just struck me, you are referring to something happening now.

It's a hard one. The dough these guys throw in helps pay for the events in a way our meagre offerings don't.

A lot of football clubs here earn a LOT from corporate hospitality. I guess it helps keep out ticket prices down.

Thanks, CBI. Yes, it's Spring here at Hemisphere South. Not sure about the trickle down theory of corporate hospitality but understand it's now part of the fabric of anything enjoyable. Would prices come down if corporate hospitality budgets were less? It would make sense. But my main beef is against the slavish idolatry of the tabloids with their saturation coverage.
