AKA, the Clarence Valley's serial writer of letters to editors, has struck again.
As reported on this site on Monday, in an item titled 'A word of caution for newspaper letters editors' there's a correspondent who regularly uses aliases when corresponding with newspapers.
AKA (also known as) has had a letter published in today's Daily Examiner. Sadly, the paper didn't take the advice provided on Monday and check the writer's bona fides.
To make matters worse, today's letter is the same one published by the Northern Star on Monday, give or take a few commas, apostrophes and altered paragraphing.
Today's letter is a little bit longer than Monday's, suggesting a number of possible scenarios.
Did the Star cut the letter's tale/tail?
Or did AKA, who has a penchant for using the old cc and bcc tactic when emailing, actually submit two letters that were virtually the same but the one to the Examiner was a few paragraphs longer?
Here's today's letter in the Examiner.
