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 Shows how out of date Mel­bourne’s Lord Mayor is.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?

Patto, Trar­al­gon
