City mat­ters

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - COMMENT -

Re­gard­ing the cy­cling lane be­tween Green Point and the city, res­i­dents don’t go to work by bike ex­cept hard­core cy­clists. Are these lanes a waste of money or what?

The drain on the corner of Com­mer­cial and Can­ter­bury streets has been with­out a cover for three weeks; get it fixed be­fore some­one gets hurt.

Opin­ions

Great let­ter, Brian Cox. Maybe that should be the last word, as the ho­mo­pho­bic big­ots will not see rea­son.

What gives Brian Cox the right to launch a per­sonal at­tack with­out the facts? Cox comes across as be­ing as much of a whiner and bigot as he ac­cuses Naidoo of be­ing, and the joke is he doesn’t even re­alise it.

Law & or­der

On Thurs­day at 8.55am, while I stood at the ro­bots at the top of Par­adise Road where De Waal Drive be­gins, there were sirens and flash­ing blue lights. The pres­i­dent? Nope. Just some pris­on­ers from Pollsmoor. Some­one must have over­slept and cre­ated this fran­tic emer­gency.

Bri­tish po­lice shoot an in­no­cent man seven times in the head. Shoot a drunk lawyer 57 times. But they can’t even use fire hoses to dis­perse a mob of stu­dents on the ram­page.

If Inge Lotz had been Bri­tish her murder would have been solved.

Oth­ers

Tony Schilder, thank you for your won­der­ful mu­sic and huge con­tri­bu­tion. RIP.

Al­though I dis­like Steve Hofmeyr’s vul­gar­ity I am in­clined to agree with his sen­ti­ments. Those who de­mand the most con­trib­ute the least.

The ANCYL was aware Mbeki was too clever to be manipulated by them. They took their sup­port away and gave it to the more eas­ily led per­son.

WIth Christ­mas loom­ing there can be no bet­ter gift than a lov­ing an­i­mal from or­gan­i­sa­tions like the SPCA. The love these pets will give in re­turn to their new own­ers is re­ward­ing be­yond be­lief.

Fe­male cashiers at Grassy Park Post Of­fice need bet­ter peo­ple skills. Smil­ing, greet­ing, thank­ing, etc.

The coach of Chiefs says the two big teams are Chiefs and Pi­rates; the rest are the small teams. And peo­ple ask why I only watch English soc­cer.

An­i­mal hell hole… Well done SPCA. But ware­house own­ers should be jailed in such cases.

Veg­e­tar­ian who has nicer Christ­mas din­ners with­out meat – your pre­vi­ous cook shouldn’t be al­lowed near a kitchen or you have poor taste in food.

Sun In­ter­na­tional should fire the man­ager of Grand West be­fore they lose all their clients.The only ma­chines that are pay­ing out are the ATMs.

Why don’t cus­tomers step back once they have or­dered goods and ser­vices at a counter and make space for the next per­son?
