Jon Stanhope has put out the call for nominations of ‘award-worthy’ Canberrans. You can nominate “individuals and groups who achieve great things and who make a significant contribution to the people of Canberra” for three different awards.

If you know of anyone or a group who deserves a nomination, why not publicly honour them in the comments section below?

Al Grassby.

Surely he deserves some sort of gong, as well as a $72,000 statue?

John Hargreaves, for
1) Demonstrating that a total fool can be sprung by a breathalyser unit,
2) Arrogance and foul language will be acceptable if in a position of power, and
3) You can get the ACT public to pay for statues of your hero, Al Grasby, anytime you like.

I nominate Antonia at Deli Planet Fyshwick Markets. Always helpful, never fussed, really knows her food. I love that shop. I’d move in and live there if I could.

So we nominate worthy Canberrans, the nominations disappear into the Black Box of CMD and award winners pop out in March?

That’s a transparent process.

wouldn’t Westin then be an example of devolution. And as for natural selection, wait and see how her kid turns out I suppose.

Amber Jane doesn’t disprove evolution – Darwin never said that species always evolve for the better. Darwin’s other great idea, Natural Selection, should see to it she hasn’t got much of a future though. Yay for science!

Amber Jane Westin – for proving there are flaws with the theory of evolution.

Todd Carney – for proving there are also flaws with creation theory. Who would create such a thing? He’s like a living version of Homer Simpson only not so large and yellow.

Amber Jane Westin and Todd Carney – for brightening all our lives
