Herald Sun - - YOUR SAY -

WHY would you spend a for­tune send­ing your chil­dren to pri­vate religious schools in or­der to nar­row their minds and es­chew any­one who is dif­fer­ent? Joan­nie Tay­lor, Tot­ten­ham

SO Dic­ta­tor Dan is push­ing bush­fire safety? Af­ter try­ing his hard­est to de­stroy the CFA. Def­i­nitely in elec­tion mode. Mike, Nu­murkah

SUSIE O’Brien, I en­joy your ar­ti­cles. Did you know when you hire a rental car, the cheap­est way to get around the ex­cess in­surance charge is to take out travel in­surance? We don’t think of tak­ing it out in our own coun­try but it is quite cheap. Poppy Young, Ab­bots­ford

MY wife, Mar­garet, turned 90 on Oct 4. Friend in Buniny­ong, 9km away, posted her a card on Oct 1. It ar­rived on Thurs­day (Oct 11). A very lethar­gic snail in­deed. Arthur Comer, Se­bastopol

NEVER had much time for the “Honey Badger”, Nick, but now I love the bloke. Fancy ACA an­noy­ing him on a break. Greg, Bun­doora

I RE­MEM­BER grow­ing up in Wol­lon­gong in the ’60s and my par­ents buy­ing Syd­ney Opera House lottery tick­ets each week. I think Mum bought enough tick­ets to pay for one of the sails. Bill, Swan Hill

MONIQUE (Text Talk, 11/10), I’m an ex­pat Mel­bur­nian who lives in Syd­ney and I love both cities. Un­for­tu­nately, I have a son with a se­vere gam­bling ad­dic­tion so while I value the pos­i­tive im­pact of tourism, I do not value the con­stant de­mons my beloved son faces when con­fronted with gam­bling ad­ver­tis­ing. Some of us have le­git­i­mate rea­sons for not want­ing this type of pro­mo­tion. John, Cam­den, NSW

MONIQUE, the Ever­est de­ba­cle would not hap­pen in (su­pe­rior) Mel­bourne, be­cause un­like Syd­ney, there is noth­ing de­cent to use as a pro­jec­tor screen. Ge­off, Ba­rooga, NSW

I WOULD like to ask the AFL what the cri­te­ria is for a pri­or­ity pick. In the last four years Carl­ton has fin­ished 18th, 14th, 16th and 18th (two wooden spoons) and has a win/loss rate of 19/69. Just ad­mit there is no such thing. Ric, Lara

SO Hawthorn made $24.3 mil­lion in profit from pok­ies. I thought it was a fam­ily club. Themy, En­deav­our Hills
