HOW to make a city less liveable — ban cycling. Shows how out of date Melbourne’s Lord Mayor is.
Mark, Geelong TONY, could I please borrow the government helicopter to visit my mum in Melbourne next week? It’s her birthday. To keep with tradition we could turn it into a fundraiser.
George, Ballan CLIVE (Hot Topic, 16/7), you’re so funny ... the thought of Bronwyn voluntarily catching a train to Geelong. Ha ha ha ...
Mrs B, Williamstown WELL stated, Wellington Lee (YS, 15/7), re our flag — 102,000 servicemen and women have died for Australia, under our flag.
Bill Eckhard, Fingal, Tas THE Greeks’ avoidance in paying tax is legendary. When holidaying I asked why so many buildings still had reo (steel) sticking out. Answer: you pay tax when it’s finished.
Joe Bradshaw, Brunswick THE “gimme gimme” association is very strong in Greece.
Malcie, Yarrawonga IF Greeks can’t handle the real world, they could try emigrating to Pluto.
Europhile, Point Cook PLEASE, no more photos of Knight or Bryant, they make me sick. I don’t need to be reminded what they look like.
Brian McKay, Traralgon McDONALD’S, KFC, Oporto, Pizza Hut, etc, should introduce a no BYO (other food) policy in their restaurants. That would upset the wowsers.
P. Smith, Wagga Wagga, NSW SORRY, Tik (50/50, 16/7), you got it wrong. They got Malu the orang-utan back into his cage by threatening to send him to Wangaratta for a weekend.
Ken, Prahran CARM Power (TT, 15/7) says that giving up smoking is one of the hardest things to do. I disagree ... I did it hundreds of times.
Doug Barker, Albury, NSW BADGER (TT, 15/7), try buying a slab of full-strength beer for $5 extra and drink half as much.
T. Fowler, Wallan ARE those families on the Qantas “feels like home to me” ads real families, eg, the miner returning home — or actors? Please tell me they are genuine people.
Margaret, Bacchus Marsh NO wonder there’s a reported decline in magpie sightings. Most of them are here, lovingly crapping on my back veranda.
H. Schnerring, Ferntree Gully SHOULDN’T the sling tackle be deemed holding the man, as he doesn’t have the ball?
