Salient. Victoria University Student Newspaper. Volume 33, No. 1 18 February 1970

Polemicists freed

Polemicists freed


Changes of editorship notwithstanding, we can again this year as in every year expect the columns of your newspaper to periodically display the levered frenzy of those who, wriggling their toes in holy esetasy, will scathe their contemporaries for lack of interest in the Cause of the Week, whatever such Cause may be.

You are happy, I know, to explode such squibs—they are in the service of Reader Involvement, they inspire, or provoke, letters to the Editor. Here, then, is such a letter. I am happy to write it; you are happy to print it; it frees me from three terms of moral galvanisation and your polemicists from an equal period of effort on my behalf.

Antony Martin.
