Bad jux­ta­po­si­tion

The Oldie - - READERS' LETTERS -

SIR: I must say that I was not im­pressed by your in­clu­sion in the Oldie of the Year sec­tion (March is­sue) of Craig Brown’s piece on Lady Colin Camp­bell. The fact that she ate a turkey’s tes­ti­cles and other ques­tion­able things does not in my eyes make her an ad­mirable fig­ure. What re­ally ran­kled, how­ever, was this ap­pear­ing in an ar­ti­cle along­side the coura­geous Aung San Suu Kyi. Not only is she one of the bravest peo­ple of the late 20th/21st cen­tury, she has gone through her or­deals with the kind of hu­mil­ity and care for her fel­low hu­man be­ings that could teach us all how to live in har­mony in this trou­bled world.

Chris Gorman, Liv­ingston, Scot­land.
