    WANTED: GEOGRAPHY LESSONS Here’s a tale of a young lady who travelled to Australia and became a tutor to four young kids. What threw me, though, was this lede sentence:

    She’s just returned from a four-month stay in Queensland, one of only five states in Australia, a continent of Asia located between the Indian and Pacific oceans.(emphasis added)

    While I appreciate the paper’s helpful touch of placing Australia between the Indian and Pacific Oceans, I’m pretty sure Australians would be surpised to learn they are a “continent of Asia”, whatever that’s supposed to mean.
