Trent Dal­ton did to­tal jus­tice to Ray War­ren (“What’s eat­ing Rab­bits?”, July 1-2). We can all be as­sured of the ab­so­lute ded­i­ca­tion and hu­mil­ity that this icon of Aus­tralian rugby league com­men­tary brings to the game. Just as the le­gendary Arthur Beet­son is the bench­mark on the field, Ray War­ren is the stan­dard by which all in the com­men­tary box will be mea­sured. Wayne Wanstall Ade­laide, SA poverty. The chal­lenge of in­te­grat­ing a mil­lion for­eign­ers is im­mense – but the moral chal­lenge of look­ing af­ter the many mil­lions dis­placed by ter­ror and war is even big­ger. And not do­ing our bit could cause even more long-term dam­age to our se­cu­rity, peace and so­cial fab­ric. Ulf Stein­vorth Tam­borine Moun­tain, Qld ex­cess comma than the ubiq­ui­tous habit of throw­ing around that ob­nox­ious word “like”. Used with aban­don, it de­stroys the rhythm and plea­sure of the spo­ken and writ­ten word. With­out punc­tu­a­tion, as Shake­speare said, “’Zounds! I was never so bethump’d with words…” ( King John, Act II, Scene I). Ros Smith Mid­dle Park, Qld Tense. We old prod­ucts of Vic­to­rian schools miss it. BA Will­cox Mona Vale, NSW
