Keep an eye out for this one: Hosting the 2008 Miss World contest could
do for Brisbane what the Olympics did for Sydney, our friend Michael
Johnson says – and he’s formed a committee to lobby for the event.

“This competition has an audience of almost three billion so it’s going to
be great jobs, great for the economy,” he told the ABC. “This is
a showcase to the world as the Olympics did for Sydney.”

Check with his office later today to see if the “Kuties for Khemlani” t-shirts are available yet.
