My crowd reached the Macquarie Theatre an hour before the talk started so we elbowed our way to occupy the seats at the main theatre. Every seat in the house was taken within 5 minutes of the doors opening and security had to shoo a few step-sitters out. Fortunately, Mac U was able to videolink the lecture to several other venues on campus. The 1000 strong audience showed their appreciation with a standing ovation. Fisk speaks at Macquarie Uni God bless Balmain pubs for creating such soulful atmosphere after the speech. Bohemians of Czech and South African temperament are nocturnal people and like to stay out all night ;-)

We may have forgotten about the Ottoman Empire, but in the grand march of history it has not forgotten about us... Knowledge Without A Larger Understanding
