Scott, Thomas, 1947- :"His life's in tatters...only Auckland celebrity not mentioned in the name-suppression drug-bust gossip..." Dominion Post. 25 July 2005.

The scene is a pub in which the bar-tender and two blokes with drinks are looking with some anxiety at a man sitting alone in abject despair with a glass and a champagne bottle in a bucket beside him. The bar-tender tells the two that the man considers his life to be in tatters because his name hasn't been mentioned in the drug-bust gossip. Refers to a recent case in which reporters stated that although the alleged offenders in a drug-bust case had name-suppression, they were celebrities. The result was a huge amount of guessing, gossip and supposition about who the celebrities might have been. The cartoon shows the bizarre world of celebrity when names not gossiped about, even negatively, are considered less celebrated.
