Murky threat

Murky threat

Sir—Do I perceive a murky threat to relieve me of my current status as King of the Centre Pages? Could it be that some other bearded bug wishes his name to be inscribed (for those with vertically-arranged eyes or appended page-turner-rounders) in the midst of those hallowed leaves? And well he might, for how many times have I, sir, upon viewing further aborted masterpieces in these pages not registered violent complaints with you? And have we not agreed that there are other offset printers within somewhat less than 500 miles who know how to print a photograph?

It seems that like all wellpaid craftsmen these days your printer either lacks any artistic qualities or is a retired journalist, which means, roughly the same thing. In short, I wish to make a public disclaimer, to the effect that photographs published in Salient with my name in, or around them, are reproduced in such a way that they rarely bear any resemblance to my own lovingly-produced works, either living or dead.

I am,

Yours etc.,

Mike Silver.
