A WET Sunday afternoon so I turned on the TV. Too old for the children's channels or strange Japanese game shows. Not a sports fan and don't have any interest in four-wheel drive or fishing. Not interested in buying a house overseas. Very unlikely I'll ever get the urge to construct a seven foot cake or consume massive amounts of American BBQ meat. Fed up with all the talking heads on the ABC. Off button and a good book.

ALAN Jones may think he is God (‘Premier lights up Opera House’, Herald 6/10) but I'd spell it backwards.

OH, WHERE to now for the hypocritical Greens and anti coal imbeciles with the Harvard University finding that wind turbines are contributing to mythical climate change in an alarming way (Boston Globe 5/10)?

THE TIT-for-tat between Steve Barnett (Short Takes, 6/10) and the rest of the usual suspects is wearing a bit thin.
Grant Conway, Lambton
STEVE Barnett (Short Takes, 6/10) you claim that before body shaming a checkout operator you were the recipient of a derogatory comment. But I ask you, when purchasing any food item, how could the sentence "Yuck I couldn't eat that" ever possibly be interpreted by anyone as derogatory?

BRAD Hill (Short Takes 8/10), I strongly disagree with your opinion on the next great immortal Cameron Smith! You obviously have never played the game. For Cameron to be at peak fitness for all these years is a credit to him and the Storm training staff. I hope to see him play for many more seasons, and perhaps sign with the Knights. Smith, Pearce and Ponga – what a great spine!

I AM reading today's papers and am puzzled as to why they are referring to daylight 'savings'. Am I wrong? To me, it should read 'daylight saving'. This has been going on for years and I am wondering if I’m wrong.

THE more we see and hear from our brand new Prime Minister, the more of a goose he appears to be in my view. How about a few policies, SloMo, rather than threatening unions (‘PM Scott Morrison picks fight with CFMMEU’, Herald 4/9)?
Mac Maguire, Charlestown
I WAS medical retired from Fire and Rescue NSW in 2006 with bladder cancer. Many of my friends that I have worked with have passed or are still fighting cancer (‘New law presumes cancers work-related’, Herald 4/10). No-one was there to support me through the journey of cancer, and I believe the Fire and Rescue have a duty of care to all of us. It’s about time we were helped with health effects from our service.

WOULD you hang a portrait of the Queen at home?
