Just WHERE is the South Pole?

Friday’s Herald, page 15. In an article on Lake Vostok, the location of this mass of water is described as "3.8 km beneath the surface, about 1300 km east of the South Pole". Go figure.

Unfortunately the online version is somewhat trimmed down and misses this plainly ridiculous piece of information.  

Google Earth tells me it’s 77 degrees south, 105 degrees east.
