So we Avoid Detention, but we Have to Go on Writing Lines.
After receiving several copies of Salient I must congratulate you on providing me with the only regular contact with that part of our Society that is not existing in a mist of apathy, indifference, rationalisation, delusions, hypocrisies and self-gratification.
It is elating and stimulating to know of one paper that is at least trying to provoke our mindless fat-arsed society into thinking for themselves instead of being manipulated.
It is refreshing to compare your paper with the immature self-conciously liberal and "enlightened" productions of other campuses.
I just hope that your paper is reaching those that really need it, "Civilisation is in a race between education and catastrophe."
