Today's letter to The Age

Dear sir/madam,

In the Lord of the Rings trilogy of books and films it took a woman - Eowin, portrayed in the films by Miranda Otto - for the world to get rid of the evil Witch King once and for all.
By the same token, I suggest Labor gives Julia Gillard a chance so that we could all get rid of the Howard regime for good.

Don't forget Merry. She could not have done it without him. And by extension Frodo and Tom Bombadil.

You're probably not aware of it, but at least height-wise, John Howard is the hobbit of this story.
Not that it matters - I would have dearly liked a halfling in charge if he/she was up to any good.
