NO PAPER, SEAT AT BEACHFRONT TOILETS
MY four-year-old grandson needed the toilet at Kings Beach on Sunday and his grandpa on holiday from England took him to the public toilets. No toilet seat and no toilet paper so Grandpa had to wipe with his own hand and running water! Disgusting! Our grandson was in tears.
COP WATCHES RULES BEING DISOBEYED
GOING down Disa Avenue, Cotswold, a double cab tow truck passes me at a top speed, pushes me to one side and jumps two red robots, as a traffic official just watches him from the side of the road.
FLOYD’S CALL BRILLIANT
FLOYD’S Call on Friday February 8 on Patrice Motsepe’s efforts to save South Africa: your articles are brilliant and this one my best, so far. Tells it like it is but with a huge dose of humour and it makes for enjoyable reading. It takes one out of that low energy to a high. Hell, if I had money I would be your sponsor to Argentina. You make my day, thank you.

INSENSITIVE TO USE PICTURE OF FATHER
SIES on you, Herald, for using a picture of a distraught father on the front page. It is not called for. Hooligan of the day for you!
THE Herald is insensitive to families of tragedies using the photo on Monday’s front page. Some years ago a photo of a dead driver trapped in car near Forest Hill and a photo of a drowning victim at Storms River being airlifted out of the sea appeared on newspaper front pages.
HOW cold-bloodedly insensitive of The Herald to publish the photograph of the devastated father being restrained at the accident scene which claimed the life of his daughter (February 11). If your staff had cared to take just a moment to think it through, you could not have taken that photograph in the first place, let alone printed it! How despicably cruel. Shame on you.
WHY WAS DIP STILL CLOSED ON MONDAY?
WHY was the Third Avenue dip still closed on Monday morning when it was bone dry at 7am after the storm? It caused such unnecessary traffic chaos!
DISASTERS AT EVERY TURN
SURELY Christians should have second thoughts about their faith after reading the front page of The Herald on Monday.
SA CHAOS: we are not far from PW Botha’s state of emergency of 1985. All the old things will come back, including capital punishment.
POPE BENEDICT RESIGNS
WHAT is Pope Benedict telling us? Can his Maker not deal with senility?
THREE WATSON PICTURES TOO MUCH
IT’S more than enough having one picture of the overrated "Puke” Watson appear in the paper, but three is nauseating (yesterday’s Herald).
EXCELLENT SERVICE IN PORT ALFRED
EXCELLENT service received from a woman at the Port Alfred traffic department on duty on Monday. She issued our driving licences with the utmost efficiency, patience and friendly smiles. Thank you.
