Thought I'd poke this little musing in.  I suggest Dave *not* use this as 
a topic of conversation; he may find his audience polarised a particular 
way :-)

The Northern Territory passed some legislation legalising euthanasia. 
(top google hit: http://www.globalideasbank.org/creend/CRE-14.HTML - 
because I'm too lazy to find a *good* article)).  It was quashed by the 
Federal Parliament.

I believe it was a specific topic of debate in the Federal Parliament that 
sites discussing euthanasia would be covered by the mandatory filter, as 
it is *illegal*.  That leads to the interesting question of whether these 


would be filtered!

I wonder if the Federal Government's squishing of the Territory's 
government still rankles...
