Graeco-Roman wedgies and the biggest game of blackjack in the world

Patrick Cook's obituary of Kerry Packer is less sycophantic and possibly more accurate than most.

Absolutely inspired! From a distance, I am somewhat bemused by the adulations being heaped on old Goanna - and a State funeral no less! He'd be laughing if he was here to listen to all of it.

I do so love Patrick Cook, and have done so for many years. On reflection I think I should maybe put a bit more info in the post -- I suspect most citizens of the blogosphere are too young to understand the full significance of the words 'Patrick Cook' and so won't have bothered to follow the link. My bad.

As for Packer and his state funeral-- don't get me started. As if he hadn't cost the government enough in unpaid tax already.
