Baldest:
legendary police roundsman John Silvester, fresh from Saturday’s cracking scoop in The Age with Wendy Pierce confessing to the Walsh Street police killings.


Best performance:
Peter Klages, now a senior executive at Fairfax, who performed the old Sun Subs Club song – Bang go the Bins.


Best on ground:
Herald Sun hack Terry Brown, who organised the turn, led the
festivities from the front for most of the night before faltering in
the home straight. Did well to still be able to form words when it came
time to make a speech.

It really is a shame that no-one from the three other papers that
suffered Rupert’s “death by merger” on AFL grand final day in 1990, The Herald, The Mirror and The Telegraph, bothered to get together to mark an important anniversary. The Sun reunion was so much fun they really should do it every year!
