What amazes me...

... is that Rolf Harris can still generate headlines.

Rolf Harris to me is a remnant of an Australia that has long since disappeared (though unfortunately a lot of the racism of that time has managed to hang around). There's got to be a whole generation of young folk scratching their heads over this story. My main lasting memory involving Rolf Harris is from when I was a young 'un and I saw a repeat episode of The Goodies where they did a spoof about his success in Britain. I mean, that was doubly second hand re-hashing of a relatively lame media phenomena. How long is the memory of the Australian media?
