I'm seeking a copy of:

"A Student of Technology; Emmanuel George Mesthene", The New York Times, January 18, 1969

After he quietly informed the organization, they only partially fixed the problem, so he reported everything to the press.

I've been hoping for ages that we'd get some new plant emoji and now, finally, we're getting... this... What is this, anyway? Looks a little bit like... dracaena fragrans? Eh, close enough.
