Column authorship challenged

To the Editor:

The Tech, in its usual wisdom, has committed grave oversights in two of its recent editions.

First, in The Tech of Oct. 22, you have published a bizarre and unique piece of writing -- one whose claim of authorship, by Simson L. Garfinkel, is clearly false.

You have been duped by alien forces, perhaps the KGB, for as we all know, Garfinkel has never written a coherent piece of prose in his life. Please explain.

Second, where are you or your writer, Wheatman, hiding the pictures of his encounter with Valerie C. Coel SM '80 and entourage? No offense to Mr. Marconi [Oct. 18, p.20], but we'd rather see some of Miss Coel's reputed attributes.
