Shrink you bastards...

I spotted a superb letter in today's Age:

I SAT in a city park yesterday morning, trying in vain to appreciate the "souvenir edition" of The Age to mark the end of the Commonwealth Games. Poster-sized pages flapped in the breeze; whole sections escaped my grasp and literally flew away. Opposite me, an elderly couple enjoyed their Herald Sun with quiet dignity. I refuse to be made a laughing stock. For God's sake, go tabloid.
Sam McMillan, Richmond

I couldn't agree anymore Sam McMillan. For God's sake Andrew Jaspan, DO IT! Is the publishing of this letter the first stage of an under the radar campaign by the Age to soften its readers up to the prospect of turning tabloid? I live in hope....
