YOUR COVER STORY headlined “This really sucks” (14 August), in which you chronicle the rampant corruption and wasteful conduct within our inept public service, was scary. The surprising aspect of all this is how little public and media outrage is evident.

It’s a catastrophe of mammoth proportions. D WOLPERT
