THE BIG STORY in this week’s is­sue was truly an eye-opener (‘Kid­napped – try­ing to feed our fam­i­lies’, Oc­to­ber 23). I could not be­lieve the plight of the poor fish­er­men who not only have to fight ab­ject poverty but ruth­less pi­rates as well who kid­nap them for ran­som. I won­der why the po­lice and other gov­ern­ment agen­cies are not do­ing any­thing to pro­tect th­ese men from th­ese crim­i­nals – it’s shock­ing.

THE AR­TI­CLE ON In­dian fish­er­men, who are kid­napped on the high seas by pi­rates gave a grim insight into their lives. I was sad­dened by the in­sen­si­tiv­ity of the author­i­ties, who are do­ing noth­ing to pro­tect th­ese poor peo­ple. They are only try­ing to earn an hon­est liv­ing.

I COULD NOT BE­LIEVEMY

FAVOURITE MAG­A­ZINE Fri­day had a one-on-one withmy favourite star John Tra­volta (‘I want to be Bond... James Bond’, Oc­to­ber 23).

The first time I watched him was in Grease many years ago and was smit­ten by his stylish moves. But when I saw him in Pulp Fic­tion and

Sword­fish, I re­alised that he is not only a good-look­ing star but also a ta­lented ac­tor. It’s a pity that his act­ing prow­ess has not been recog­nised by the Hol­ly­wood fra­ter­nity. Claire T, via email

THE JOHN TRA­VOLTA IN­TER­VIEW was bril­liant. What I loved most was how, in spite of achiev­ing so­much, he is still so pas­sion­ate about his craft and wants to push the en­ve­lope fur­ther. I hope some movie mogul reads this in­ter­view and casts John as Bond, for I’m sure he’ll make a great one. A real can­did in­ter­view with one of Hol­ly­wood’s big­gest tal­ents. I loved ev­ery word of it!

I THOUGHT THE PRO­FILE ON Dr Fredric Brandt, the spe­cial­ist whomade Bo­tox a com­mon phe­nom­e­non, was ironic (‘Bo­tox back­lash’, Oc­to­ber 23). The fact that this man took his own life de­spite his achieve­ments proves that good looks alone can­not guar­an­tee hap­pi­ness.

Many of you were left shocked by the sto­ries on the late Bo­tox guru Dr Fredric Brandt and kid­napped fish­er­man John Tra­volta can still make some Fri­day read­ers go weak at the knees
