Socratic Dialogues

Friendly Gains can gatecrash Easy's party if Socrates fails

The SmarTone-Vodafone Happy Valley Million Challenge goes to the wire tonight at the city track and Douglas Whyte and Friendly Gains may be there to spoil the party even if Easy does pull out another big run in the Bowen Handicap (1,200m).

Socrates has staying power to rattle rivals

It isn't pretty but he gets the job done and Caspar Fownes's improving young stayer Socrates should relish the step up in trip to win the Douglas Handicap over 2,200 metres at Happy Valley tonight.

It's hard to think past Socrates

The old adage 'great minds think alike' applies to plenty of Triple Trio players this weekend who are no doubt likely to use aptly named Socrates as the banker in the middle pin at a cracking Sha Tin meeting on Sunday.

When actions speak louder than words

I REFER to Voon San Lai's letter headlined 'Judge the individuals' (South China Morning Post, September 6) in response to Joyce Wong's earlier letter 'Japan must make sincere apology' (SCM Post, September 1).

Lai has, of course, every right to refuse to accept Ms Wong's sentiment that the 'majority of young people in Asia still feel animosity towards the Japanese'.

Japanese must make sincere apology

I REFER to Penny Lee's letter headlined, 'Harmony' (South China Morning Post, August 24).

'[I] express here once again my feelings of deep remorse and state my heartfelt apology.' - Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama making Japan's first clear-cut apology for its World War II aggression.

'They were extremely polite.' - Martin Lee Chu-ming, speaking after being refused entry into China for the LawAsia conference.

Bad attitude over a health risk

I AM one of those white collar workers you see everyday in Central. I would like to share my shocking experience with you and the other workers who are most likely to be the potential victims of an experience similar to mine.

On October 5, I bought a lunch box from the fast-food restaurant Nine to Five, located on the third floor of Prince's Building, Central.
