About last Saturday
Rodney Mazinter, how can there be peace when Israel is continually stealing Palestinian land while being armed and supported by America against the hapless Palestinians? – Faried Vallie, Belhar
I’m all for Palestine, and it’s a great story about the constant battle against fear. But children like the 11-yearold journalist do not belong in politics. They are innocent and not fully developed and need protection, not adult atrocities. Militants don’t give a damn about them.
Hair we go! Parents, find a school to accommodate your child’s hairstyle if that is the important factor for you. Don’t blame the school; you chose it. – M Leahy, Monte Vista
Getting front page publicity for nonsense such as schoolkids’ hairstyles seems to have become part of “culture”. Time to grow up, parents. – William Bowler, Hout Bay
The country and city reel under violent crime, corruption and drought. Headlines in Weekend Argus: a squabble about a schoolboy’s haircut.
Kindly return the puzzles on Saturday to what they were. Thank you in anticipation. (This is under consideration – The Editor)
What happened to "Scene in the City?" (There were space constraints – The Editor)
Thirty ordinary members of society die daily on our roads. Not an eye is batted. One MP dies (RIP) and an investigation has to be launched on their safety. Living on our taxpayers’ money, yet they are privileged. – Etienne Schut, Bellville
Lynne Brown should be fired because she is responsible for Eskom, which wasted taxpayers’ money, and now consumers must pay high electricity prices. – Frans Fortuin, Belhar
Cape Town Partnership is in serious trouble but the chief executive sees nothing wrong with going off to Spain on holiday. This was gross dereliction of duty. – William Bowler, Hout Bay
A new version of the abominable apartheid has emerged, this time instituted by, of all places, UCT, aimed at elderly, poor and previously disadvantaged people. If you want to enrol at UCT Summer School, you HAVE to do so via e-mail, with NO alternative method. I, having attended this facility for countless years, have immediately cancelled any bequests made in my will to UCT. – E Heath, Green Point
