Staff Notes — The Notes
After a small balls up last week, Salient is back with a vengence. As they say, you can't hold a good balls up down?
Leading the struggle this week (as with every other week) is John Ryall, phantom beret snatcher. The entire issue was typeset by the inponderable Pat Starkey who claims close consanguinial ties with Ringo. David Murray threw his weight about a little and now masquerades under the title of A1 Capone although this is thought to represent something completely different.
The women's supplement was conceived and delivered by Sue Jarvis. Barbara McElwee. Petra van den Munckhof, Gillian Goodger. Angela Belich, Lynn McGimpsy and Rachel Scott.
Gary Henderson completed his weekly real of SRC reporting and his namesake John honours us with his presense in taking a rare excursion from his busy life of commerce and business.
Ruthless Lindy Cassidy assaults MUSA as the Wellington frontperson for WUSA, Rae Ewart. makes her second appearance at Vic in recent times. Anthony Ward debates the value of Truth ably aided and abetted by his demon proof reader earlier mentioned.
Gerard Couper shows mild enthusiasm urged on by WVP and Secretary Leonie Morris. Nell Gray doesn't let inexperience hamper his part in revolutionary practice while Terry Auld debates the use of the term with mirth and Patrick Mulrennan. Kevin Swann (the bus driver) drives David Tripe away as Warwick Dewe (advertising) salutes Big Lenny.
Lionel 'Pentax' Klee and Lynn Peck provide grassroots support to an enraged Leigh Thompson, a man who now prefers cellulose to newsprint. Mike Stephens remains technical editor although his reluctance to lay out may jeopardise his chances.
Doubtless there are others who deserve mention but certain persons memories are not up to much at 12 midnight on Thursday. Hope you enjoy this bumper issue folks, and may the third term pass quickly.
P.S. The Salient Socialist Party is dismayed to note that their cult hero Rose Desmond has taken to certain decadent and bourgeois habits. The Central Committee urge her to return to the fold.
