Ian Thorpe will now never read this blog

Ian Thorpe hasn't read his new biography. According to the Age, he refuses to read anything written about him. That's...odd. I could understand not wanting to read articles or interviews, especially if you're prone to making a fool of yourself, but to not read your own biography? He comes off a little arrogant. If I bought his book** I'd be mightily pissed off that not only did he not have a hand in it, he didn't even give it a look over. How long would it take to read the book anyway?

Since this is a political blog, I'll add that one of the revelations in the book is that he briefly dated Chelsea Clinton. I'm ashamed that I spent a tiny bit trying to work out if that was an indication of his political leanings. I say not. The image of many famous Australian sports people speaking out against Howard will have to remain one of my fantasies.

** Which I wouldn't, as overrated sporting types bore me senseless.
