Happy Australia Day!

Today is Australia Day, although you wouldn't really know it by walking around as most stores are open. The day definitely doesn't seem to hold the same significance as Independence Day in the US. Here are some opinion pieces from The Age to read around Australia Day and national identify:

True Blue In All Its Shades by Peter Goldsworthy
Our Flagging Enthusiasm by Michael Leunig
Why It's Australian To Be Un-Australian by Larissa Dubecki
