From John Roskam
After the 1,038,382 individual Hey…What did I miss? emails we’ve sent since the beginning of the year to the 22,946 of you who receive it, we can tell you the hits and the misses for 2012.
The most popular single story was:
- the deaf boy from Nebraska whose name violated his school’s weapons policy
- the number of people the Australian government sent to Qatar
- the fridge that tells your friends when you break your diet.
Here’s the three things you had absolutely no interest in:
- what Warren Buffett has in common with Bootleggers and Baptists
- the next president of the World Bank
- Obamacare and the Supreme Court.
And here’s my personal favourite, it’s from Boris Johnson of course.
This is the last Hey for 2012. We’re back in January. Have a nice Christmas.
Here’s what else the IPA said this week:
- Simon Breheny, Where is the Coalition on freedom of speech? – FreedomWatch
- John Roskam, Boiling frog of personal freedom - The Australian Financial Review
