Stilted Praise

Dear Editors,

Salient is generally better this year than in any previous year within my experience, although it sometimes seems that your pages are over endowed with ultra-leftist adventurism. [unclear: The] content is varied and interesting, the quality of typesetting, layout, production is unprecedentedly good and apart from the unjust censorship by the printers is an excellent paper. But why do you have to display such bias against those who subscribe to political groups which you disagree. It is all very well to have reservations about some others opinions, but is it reasonable to curtail their expression by so often proscribing them in Salient and resorting to ill-founded ridicule? I know that this distresses many of my friends as well as myself.

I must say, too, that I sometimes suspect that some of your letters are written by the staff.
