Come, come, you can hardly blame American naturalists (especially birders)
for the AUSTRALIAN MEDIA's fixation with Bill's Oval Room cigar antics
rather than with detailing the behavioural characteristic of his other
"Willie" (Wagtail, of course).

Besides, it also ignores the fact that public opinion in the States is
overwhelmingly as tired of the media coverage of Monica and her "guess who I
blew [into] while on the way to the White House" saga as most of us Down
Under are.

Honest, I too was <just having a very light tease, not starting a debate>.
