'Products' not 'Profits'

'Products' not 'Profits'

Dear Sirs,

In my letter to you, which you published in last week's Salient criticising Don Frank's article "Readers Guide to Salient" I wrote, "however, if this is the case, Franks has told us nothing about the division of product between capitalists and workers which I suspect he was trying to do." When the letter appeared in Salient my word product had been replaced by the word profits. The change of wording makes it appear that I was using the word profit as sloppily as Franks was.

Brent Layton

[Not so much using the word sloppily as writing it illegibly. We regret the mistake but repeatedly plead that we don't insist our letter- writers type so long as they print clearly, double spaced, on one side of the paper only.—E.d]
