Short Takes September 29 2018: readers have their say on the day’s news

Posted by Comments off

COLIN Fordham and Adz Carter (Short Takes 26/9):it seems middle aged white males such as myself are the only ones to cause offence these days.If the obese checkout operator simply greetedme and smiled without making disparaging remarks about me purchasing sardines, I would not have cause for reply.

Steve Barnett, Fingal BayWITH but one game to decide the 2018 NRL champions, media experts who have been referring to the last-eight playoffs as preliminary finals, qualifying finals and/or elimination finalsbut never as quarter- and/or semi-finalscan now use the correct delineation. They are finally calling the final final the final. Or, hang on -should that be the grand final?

Ron Elphick,Buff PointTO OUR lord mayor and Jeremy Bath (‘Mayor warns councillors’, Herald 26/9)I would say “show us the figures.” To Cr Jon Church I would say that I appreciate you taking a stand and asking the questions of council. It reminds me of a former politician, Don Chipp, who once said he wanted to “ keep the bastards honest”.

Denise Lindus Trummel,MayfieldTO WAL Remington (Letters12/9): happy 75th Wally, put a smile on your dial by changing the dial to Question Time in Canberra. Listening to the Libs trying to get out of trouble will conquer all the prophets of gloom that regularly write to this paper.Remember your days at the Sandgate Fruit and Vegetable Markets? You always wore a smile and I vividly recall when the grandstand at Cumberland Oval burnt down (‘twas only a coincidence that Parramatta won the premiership). I vividly recall you nearly needed a plastic surgeon to remove your infectious grin. Happy birthday, Wal.

Neil Pitt,CarringtonBASED on the last Four Corners program, the tip of a big iceberg,and the upcoming Royal Commission into aged care, I find it is quite obvious that the government is incapable of delivering the right to age with dignity. So please, let’s stop beating around the bush and fast track the right to die with dignitybefore many more poor souls suffer a death that we would neither want nor let animals to go through.

Allan Earl,ThorntonIT LOOKS like South is heading toward 100 per centrenewables around 2025, according to the n Energy Market Operator’soutlook (‘Telsa big battery defies skeptics’, Renew Economy 27/9). It seems that Nathan Vass (‘Blackout: two years on, SA now needs us’, Opinion 27/9)has got it all wrong.

Agner Sorensen,TeralbaTHE POLLSSHOULD Kalyn Ponga have won the Dally M Medal for this season?

Yes 60%, No 40%WHATdid you think about Cher’s show?

Best ever 71%, Okay 20%, Not that great 9%SHOULD the Mariners be seeking to retain Usain Bolt?

Yes 53%, No 47%
