Greed culture undermining spirit of giving

I refer to the report ("China Red Cross donations in doubt after new figures show discrepancies", May 20).

It indicated that funds collected by the Red Cross Society of China to help with relief efforts following the Sichuan earthquake could not be accounted for.

Transsexual ruling poses no conflict

A transsexual woman, known in the Court of Final Appeal as "W" under anonymity rules, won a groundbreaking court appeal in Hong Kong allowing her to marry her boyfriend and forcing the government to re-write the city's marriage laws. In photo is Michael Vidler, "W"'s lawyer. Photo: AFP

I refer to Edward Choi's letter ("Ruling on transsexual raises issues about family and marriage", May 20).
