The comments thread on that ABC piece by Brendan O'Neill is frightening.

Anyway, Klein's always struck me as one of the great comic figures of our time. The cover of her idiotic global bestseller is one of the most iconic logos of the age.

And that Mail article about Doctor Who trying to bring down Thatcher that Roberts links to is really interesting (so is his, but he fails to mention Firefly; I'll take the 15 episodes of that over all the Trek “franchises” in history). It finally explains why the show turned shite in the '80s.
