Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 30, No. 12. 1967.

Two minds

Two minds

Sirs, While I admire your columnists' wit, I hardly envy them their originality. The two comments made about me in the "On the Grapevine" column over your last three issues—that I was "so left that I was right" and that T "sat right down and wrote myself a letter"—are both verbatim transcripts of my own descriptions of myself in casual cafeteria conversation

While my remarks may go some way to prove the old axiom that no one hates me better than myself. I do feel that if your columnists are to avoid charges of plagiarism they should acknowledge the sources of their quotations. I trust that similar comments on other people in your column are not also the results of eavesdropping.
