Wahine, Whitcoulls and Red Balloons

Wahine, Whitcoulls and Red Balloons

Dear John,

I would like to bring the following important points to the attention of my fellow 'Salient' readers:
1.With reference to the Wahine picture and slogan shown on the cover of a recent Salient: Attached is a busted balloon. If this had been the Hindenburg, dozens would have died (Different maybe to the Wahine disaster but the 'logic' behind the implications if the same).
2.Part-time students who are honest (there are some!) are being ripped off by Whitcoulls Ltd. When buying a text book there recently I was not allowed a discount becuase I admitted that I was only a part-time student. I suggest Whitcoulls should be avoided by all students, especially part-timers.
