The increasing prominence of Australians on the world stage continues:
"Miss Australia Jennifer Hawkins, a statuesque 20-year-old from Sydney's beach suburb of Bondi, has been crowned Miss Universe at the competition final in Ecuador."Meanwhile, the Australian Prime Minister John Howard is meeting Gov Schwarzenegger today. One of the items on the agenda, a massive gas plant off Malibu coast that would pump A$15 billion back into Australia in export earnings. The celebrity residents of Malibu are up in arms - fearing such an important facility will become a likely terrorist target. Surely one of the locals, Bruce Willis, will protect everyone from the threat. "Die Hard IV" anyone?
