    The conceptual artist Mark Wallinger, otherwise known as the Dancing Bear, has won the £25,000 Turner Prize for his monumental political work, State Britain, a recreation of the one-man Parliament Square anti-Iraq war protest destroyed by Tony Blair's government. The installation, which was shown at Tate Britain at the start of the year, was Wallinger's 40-metre long replica, complete with banners and tarpaulin shelter, of the mini-peace camp run by Brian Haw opposite the Houses of Parliament from June, 2001, until it was demolished by the police in May, 2006, under new powers banning protests within one kilometre of the...

    SUSPECTED French terrorist Willie Brigitte tried to get information from his wife, former soldier Melanie Brown about the top-secret spy facility at Pine Gap, French police sources say. During her four days of interrogation by French officials in Paris last month, police said Ms Brown recalled incidents with Brigitte in Sydney that, on reflection, seemed suspicious to her. In particular, Ms Brown is understood to have told French interrogators that Brigitte questioned her at length about the US-Australian electronic intelligence station at Pine Gap, near Alice Springs. He asked her if she had ever been inside the base when...

    Amelia Earhart? Check. Dennis Hopper? What? Late Wednesday, during the roll call to nominate John Kerry at the Democratic National Convention -- when each state gets a few seconds to brag about itself on national TV -- Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius invoked the name of Hopper, the often off-beat actor, perhaps best known for directing and starring in the classic "Easy Rider." In the short speech, Sebelius named the abolitionist Brown and pilot Earhart as famous Kansans who displayed bravery. She then named Hopper, who grew up in Dodge City, quipping that he was brave for being "Dennis Hopper." Sebelius...
