Pols Rip-Off

Pols Rip-Off

Dear Sir,

Concerning text books; in particular Les (Rockefeller) Cleveland's, "the Politics of Tai-hape". What a rip off!

1.You need to take out a mortgage to buy this classic - ($l3)approx.
2.It's printed on reconditioned Salient paper, and that makes toilet paper look shithot.
3.As for the binding, you're all right as long as you don't open it.
4.And Les, could you see me about the correct format for footnotes, any further essays like this will be rejected.
5.It's not as if we have to buy it, the cunning bastard makes its optional — but it is the only reading that will enable you to pass your "first essay".
6.Ever tried comparing $13.00 worth of Cleveland to $15.00 worth of Lipsey — Don't!
7.Now look, I'm not complaining, so don't get me wrong Les. My view is purely economical, just because I never have a weekend to myself doesn't mean I don't like Pols 111.

Yours on Behalf of the Public Opinion,

I.B. Flapworth.

P.S. Remember Les this is a democracy!
