Damn - missed our hero

anthemWI see Michael Leunig was speaking in Auckland at the Writers Festival.  We have long been Leunig fans - at least Tony and I.  pretty sure you guys will recognise the cartoons when you see them.

This one you need to hum the tune in your head as you read the words - we might need to create a NZ version to the tune of "God of Nations"

The Herald did an interview with him - good read

Interesting aside - spell check doesn't like Leunig - wants to change it to niggle.  Niggling really is the intention of a cartoonist isn't it?  I had a Board Chair many years ago in Chch who was Sande Ramage - spell checker always wanted her name changed to rampage.  also behaviourally appropriate!
