SHORT & SWEET
BILL: Weekday weddings, overseas weddings etc are the height of arrogance (Kerry Parnell: “Saying I do on a weekday is just plain irritating”, 23/9). COLLEEN: All I can say is, if it inconveniences you, don’t attend the wedding. Stay away. You were invited but nobody is making you go to a wedding held during the week. SARAH: Because people love to tell other women their birth horror stories, it breeds fear (Angela Mollard: “Eight parenting stages mums should fear more than birth”, 23/9). WENDY: Think of smallpox (“A Greens light for anti-vax”, 28/9). It was the greatest monster of all the communicable diseases. It was eradicated through vaccination. Byron council must rethink its decision. STEVE: Kudos to the stars involved in the imperfectly perfect mental illness campaign. Sharing their experiences validates the lows encountered by ordinary folks (“Stars face up to misery”, 23/9). PETER: Piers Akerman may well be right. Left-wingers get upset whenever climate change, identity politics, religion, welfare and asylum seekers come under attack from the conservatives.
