The Blanket



John O'Doherty • 28 August 2004

I am an avid reader of the Blanket and was shocked to hear of this plagiarism.

When I read of these allegations I was shocked and my immediate thought was that the Blanket has so many powerful and intelligent writers it would never deliberately publish such material.

I read many different websites who also feature writings from the Blanket so they must also recognise your professionalism and integrity.

My only hope is that your apology is accepted with the same spirit as it was given and that what has happened is not used as a means to try and damage your reputation.

On a personal basis I will continue to read the Blanket as here in England there is little or no news eminating from the North and what does filter through is unreliable.

May I take this opportunity to ask how I may make a donation towards the Blanket?
