If Margo Kingston is the online political editor at the SMH, how come her graphic shows a great big bunch of ye olden days typebars?

And who's the ugly guy with the pushed-in face? Looks like Crispin Glover with a hangover.

Showing those typewriter keys is keepin' it real and old-school, word!

Okay, maybe a career as a gangsta-rapper isn't in my future. I'll bet she actually uses a typewriter and then has an intern enter it on the computer because she still hasn't figured out how to turn it on.

Maybe Margo's a guy. That would be better, right? Right?

Tim, you promised once upon a time to warn readers when you linked to a graphic containing Margo's visage. You forgot?????!

She's the Fairfax version of the "Phantom of the Opera"; in this case, the "Hatful of the Herald"- those typset keys that you so lightly mock were the cause of her terrible disfigurement. Whilst weaving around the typeset floor due to chemical enhancement, Morgo was caught in the print machinery and swept face-first into a large set of rollers, and subsequently had 300,000 copies of the weekend edition imprinted on her kisser. It's wicked to mock the afflicted.
