Breaking news: Townsville cab driver Mike Caldwell 68, drove a naked man 1500km to Tennant Creek and let his passenger do all the talking?
Hang on a second, does that surprise anyone else? No - not the naked part - the passenger talking bit. Every cab I have ever caught the cabbie has talked my ear off. It’s incredible how much information a person can pack into fifteen minutes while driving on Sydney roads. Double that when there’s traffic, of course.

They reckon the world is shrinking. It’s not. Far-places are still far-flung, no matter how fast your laptop starts up.
The Greyhound Bus trip from Darwin to Tennant Creek takes 13 hours and 50 minutes. You can get from Sydney to Dubai in the same time.
It’s a drag, but the options are limited. The plane used to fly daily; now it’s twice a week. There’s a train, the one John Howard built back at the turn of the century, but it’s slower than the bus. It doesn’t even stop at Tennant unless you slip the driver a carton.
