To waste taxpayers' money. Why else?

Indirectly though. I'm moving to my firm's government practice.

10 years ago my location would have been country easily but now its on the urban fringe.

I'm looking at property in Goulburn. Do I get any accolades, or is it just another NSW country town.

Why the f**k would you go there?

Aside from the Paragon Cafe, there's little else on offer.

There is the big 'Super Max' Jail, but thats all I've got.

Actually, are they the Big Merino, or is that somewhere else.

It's still there but now the beaten track has moved outside the city so people tend to forget it exists. Here's a novel segue. The last time I was in Goulburn was a couple of years ago when I was with one of the Canberra gridiron clubs and we went up to G-town to play a pre-season friendly against one of the Sydney clubs - can't remember which club they were (West Sydney Pirates?) Anyhoo, their nose tackle had half the number of legs that footballers normally have. Before the snap he'd crouch very close to the ground and the spring like a mouse trap when the ball was snapped. He was also a skinny c*** but f**k he had some fight in him.

I've heard about that guy. A bloke at work played for the Predators in the NSW Gridiron comp and played against him.

The state government in NSW has made official what we've known for a long time.
