Where the hell has Jack Marx gone?

Both of you who regularly read my blog will know that my blogging role model (hee hee) is a gentleman that writes a blog for The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald online by the name of Jack Marx.

But he's gone!

You can see here that he hasn't posted since Friday 17 August.

A quick look at Blog Central at The Age online shows that his blog, The Daily Truth, is not even appearing anymore. I couldn't believe this so I did a double take and checked out Blog Central at the Sydney Morning Herald online as well.

Nope. Not there. So where has he gone? Will he return? And how do you complain?

Dikkii... he got sacked last week, for a piece he wrote on Kevin Rudd and the strippers.

Paul, are you serious?

Mr Marx had apparently been told to pull up his socks by his editor and post The Daily Truth daily, as the name implied. Which he did... for at least 2 days.

Hopefully that isn't why he's gone, because Jack Marx three times a week is better than no Jack Marx at all.

Yep. Here's a report on the sacking:

Well that's just plain unfair.

That's just plain bizarre.

Jack Marx got fired for doing what his readers love - not being as beige as all the rest.

Maybe someone online will hire him to write his occasional piece?

Kitkat, I hope that he returns soon. Somewhere.

No doubt he'll be snapped up by someone else - probably the Oz.
