Putrid

On the morning ferry from Discovery Bay one day last month, a woman tourist remarked on the 'disgusting' tonnes of garbage in the harbour. Well, she may see it that way, but it is not really disgusting, it is just refuse.

Right to smoke

As a tie wearing, 'pack-a-day' smoker, I was amused by Peter Sherwood's comments (South China Morning Post, April 1) concerning the right to choose to smoke.

It is clearly unacceptable for non-smokers to be subjected to cigarette smoke and ash in enclosed spaces.

Dynamics of success run down

IT IS sad to see your regular commentaries from Owen Hughes setting out to diminish the work of Life Dynamics and others in the field of personal development.

The Leaning Tower of Bonnie

SORRY, Bonnie, I just can't help it. You keep sticking your pretty but blank face in all the social pages. It begs to be gunned down like a target in a circus sideshow shooting gallery.

A bridge not far enough

LAST week I was presented (yes, presented) with a colour photo ready for framing. Set into the picture's mounting is a new five-rupee note, the currency of Nepal.

I will tell the story behind the photo now, and the tale of the five-rupee note later.

The St Valentine's Day Massacres

THE editor of the Island School student magazine has asked me to write a piece for his publication. That's OK, but he wants me to write about Valentine's Day.

He doesn't know it yet; choosing me to write a Valentine's Day assignment is like asking Michael Jackson to lecture on The Meaning of Responsible Adulthood.

A World Full of Weirdos

I HAVE to admit I know a lot of very weird people. These folks are from the far side; one can short of a six-pack.

They get a high weirdo rating due not only to the way they show up; their real weirdness lies in their not seeing themselves as strange.

Good and bad apples

I REFER to the letter headlined, ''5,000 years for this?'' by Mr Peter Sherwood (South China Morning Post, November 23).
