Hell On Hairy Legs shares a post-patriarchal Doctor Who ficlet:
Doctor: (airily) Oh marriage is long gone, went with the gender binary. The downfall of patriarchy made sex so much less complicated.
Donna: Gender binary? Whadya mean? There are men and women walking around, same as always. (sweeps arm around at extras to prove her point)
Doctor: (laughs) The things you would see without the TARDIS translating.

Governor-General’s Salary Up
The Governor-General’s salary will rise from $365,000 to $394,000 when Quentin Bryce takes over the post in September.
Under the Constitution, the salary cannot be increased during his five-year term. As such, it is set to reflect increases which would normally occur in that time.
The Rudd Government has not confirmed whether Mr Bryce will have access to the nation’s top secrets. His predecessor, Sir Michael Jeffrey, has had access to almost all Cabinet minutes and copies of all reports by the Office of National Assessments.
