Gratitude & Apology

Gratitude & Apology


As one Vic. sportsman, I wish to apologise for desiring the replacement of Salient's political pages representing "the only creative thought going on in this university" with reports of my "mutualising masochism". Please print my letter along with the thousands of others you have received in support of your brave stand against the several thousand Vic sports club members. I'm proud of the uncompromising viewpoint Salient has taken in the past two years with regard to sport. Thank you for providing me with such detailed reports and photographs from the demonstrations I've missed. I realise that my hoping in vain for Salient staff to cover sport was selfish, considering the more important things they had to do. I am at last aware that the narrow minded attitude which ignores the political pages for the sports pages is vastly inferior to the broadminded attitude which ignores the sports pages for the political pages. Thank you for making broad mindedness easier.

Phil Kear.
