The Adelaide poet and journalist Max Fatchen once wrote:
"Journalism is indeed the great game. It is demanding with all its facets: it has its boring calms and its furious storms; it demands speed, accuracy and integrity; it often involves sacrifice and sometimes danger; it can be a royal road to literature. The women and men who pursue it are an individualistic, fascinating, lively, investigating and sometimes unsatisfied race, always striving for the last centimetre and the exclusive story. It is indeed the great game."
True. Although Pop-O-Matic Trouble should never be overlooked.
