The Saturday Paper
Barracking for Carlton
Until last weekend I hadn’t read an article by Mike Carlton since October 5, 2012 when, in The Sydney Morning Herald, he wrote an absolute masterpiece on the Sydney-based shock jock Alan Jones. I still have a copy of my letter of adulation the SMH printed the following Monday. So it was a wonderful experience reading “The Italian job” (August 4–10). He has always amazed me with his writing skills and this article was no exception. Hopefully there will be many more to enjoy over the coming years.
