PJ in Auckland!

Fantastic news! The Center for Independent Studies (based in Australia, hence the misspelling), hasn't only just published a hit job on KiwiSaver that's got everyone talking, they've also announced that they're bringing PJ O'Rourke to Auckland! In December!

I wonder who you have to root to get a ticket?

If you have no idea who PJ O'Rourke is, then you're going to have to shell out for the best stuff -- books like Republican Party Reptile, Eat the Rich, All the Trouble in the World, Holidays in Hell and Give War a Chance -- since YouTube only seems to have the detritus of promotional tours. Here' for example is PJ taking Q&A in an author's evening a few years ago:

And talking about his new book summarising Adam Smith:

Or, you can read PJ talking about the world bicycle menace.

    Oh! that is splendid news, yes...and presumably obtaining a ticket does not require fornication (!) but will be widely available.

  2. PJ I hope, he's hot. This is the most exciting thing the CIS has ever done.

  3. “Center” is not a misspelling, it’s a rational American/Australian evolution away from the word’s French roots. (Son-tray? Ooh-la-la!) Any move away from anything French can only be positive.
