- It was St Valentine's Day 1989 in Australia. All of the specialty shops at Melbourne's Tullamarine
Airport were covered in pink hearts and offering free gift-wrapping in candy-striped paper. It was also
the first day of the fatwa against Salman Rushdie. Every newspaper carried twin images of the two
bearded men on either side o f the dispute. "Nothing that a good shave wouldn't put right,"
