Bare face Exposure

Bare face Exposure

Dear Sirs,

I had always regarded with dismay the increasing number of blank spaces in Salient until your heavy handed printer admitted that he was censoring its pages, with or without legal sanction. But last weeks picture of Peter Rotherham has taught me that indeed everything has its good and bad points. Was it an act of God that saved unsuspecting Salient readers from this inflammatory material being published or is Peter Rotherham indeed the faceless poltroon we have always been led to believe existed behind that animated rubber mask?

I await your reply with interest,

Peter Vincent.

[Direct Action, the Australian Trotskyite paper chose, in its wisdom, to print a caption about Rotherham speaking somewhere below a blank space. We are an eclectic paper, open to all points of view, and were not too proud to follow Direct Action's inspired lead—Eds]
