I know I'm in the minority, but that's a position in which I'm relaxed and comfortable.
I like the bloke.
I've done work for him.
I reckon he's a fair dinkum bloke.
I still am amazed at how he used to puff on a cigarette, stub it out, put in a koolmint, take the tickets from his man, wind out the favourite, write betting tickets at the speed of light, calculate whilst doing so, spin back the price, take bets from all those proferring money at the wound-out odds, give back the tickets, and then draw another cigarette waiting for the next challenge.
He is an Australian icon.
Pygmies might not agree.
