Congratulations to Sarah Dolan of Deakin University, quoted as saying “As a university we are committed to the fair and open exchange of ideas” (“Extremist Muslims to hold workshops’’, 3-4/10). Can we look forward this week to Deakin announcing the opening of the Bjorn Lomborg centre?

Why can’t we just go back to goodies and baddies and sort out the confusion in Syria (“Obama left flat-footed and red-faced’’, 3-4/10)? How can you be part of the axis of evil one day, and not the next?
