Topics - 40 years ago today, October the 30th 1974. It's early morning around about now in Zaire, and the Rumble In The Jungle is over.

The new edition is coming out of John Roughan's book John Key: Portrait of a Prime Minister. This must be a new trend in publishing, the rolling book. The Prime Minister believes he knows who hacked Whale Oil blogger Cameron Slater's computer and produced the source material for Nicky Hager's Dirty Politics. Seagull numbers in New Zealand are falling fast, both the black-billed gull and the red-billed gull. They're on the threatened species list now, even if not as threatened as the kiwi and the kakapo.
