Does the rabbit (24 November) know Bill Bailey is no longer a vegetarian?
Jem Moore Timsbury, Bath
How refreshing to read a positive article about veganism (Growing Up Green, 24 November), without the backhanded “other side” comments from the meat and dairy industries. I’ve been vegan for 10 years, watch what I eat, take B12 supplements and have never been healthier. Stephen Ward Stokers Siding, NSW, Australia The vehemence and ignorance shown in readers’ comments on your fishing article (All At Sea, 24 November) are extremely damaging to a very fragile industry: as a fishing family, we have never received EU grants. Name and address supplied I can identify with the existential questions of mortality and heredity Louis mulled at night (The Man Who Had 200 Children, 24 November). Ten years ago, as a single gay man at 40, I’d long since concluded I was the end of the genetic line. That changed unexpectedly when two girlfriends explained how fraught their known-donor-versus-unknown-donor family planning had been. Without hesitation, I offered to help and, when asked about my motivation, said, “I don’t want to be a father. I just want my genes to carry on. If not, what’s the point?” They now have two boys. I love seeing them and wonder much less about the meaning of life. Alan H London It’s problematic that we call a potent, highly addictive drug such as GHB “recreational” (The G-Spot, 24 November) because it makes it sound as if you’re popping down the gym, rather than risking coma and death. You can’t stop people taking it, but can keep an eye open and call 999 if you need to. Don’t delay. It does not take much to save someone’s life. Name and address supplied Weekend picked up two major awards at the British Society of Magazine Editors last week: best newspaper supplement and best art director. The judges said: “In an exceptionally strong category, the winning title stood out for its great stable of writers, flair, sharp design and the ability to keep evolving.” Weekend art director Maggie Murphy was praised for a magazine in which “there was always a frisson of surprise”.
