REPLIES TO READERS' COMMENTS
RALPH Krall says Americans are trying to destroy President Barack Obama because they "have never quite taken off the white robes of the Ku Klux Klan". Yea right. That's why they elected an African-American as president in the first place.
GARY Wiblin, I assume you weren't ever a "learner driver". Everyone has to learn some time and that entails mastering what you call the schools out rush hour.
DR GALLOWAY, unlike you. I am not politically inclined. I never have been nor will I ever be. I live in this world, but I am not of this world. If I was, then I would fight physically for what I believe in. However the kingdom I serve is above all this and the weapons I wage war with are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. My hero is Jesus and my party is all born again Christians who form the true church.
MR T, I agree with you. We also get the cows plus their mess. Also a big nuisance is screeching peacocks. There are three that live in our suburb, Bridgemeade, and sleep is impossible.
"INVESTIGATE bank tellers": I totally agree with Reader. Are the tellers allowed to have their cellphones at the desk while working? Or is security at banks not up to standard for loiterers around buildings?
I THINK Adevu Williams should also be the hero of the day, caring for his dog as he does. Wish I had the funds that I could offer him a better life to what he has.

NOTHING FUNNY ABOUT POISONING ANIMALS
HOW on earth can you allow the "comic" of Madame & Eve in your paper on October 8! The "creators" must be desperate for ideas. There is nothing humorous about poisoning elephants. You probably won't publish this.
I COULD not believe my eyes or comprehend that The Herald would make fun out of those poor elephants that were poisoned in Zimbabwe. Such a horrible death by poisoning. Apology needed for your insensitivity. Disturbing.
HOW absolutely insensitive can you get – the Madam and Eve cartoon? Definitely hooligan of the year, making a joke out of elephants dying a horrible and painful death at the hands of poachers. Disturbing and thought provoking – does The Herald take cruelty to animals as a joke?
HATE THOSE WHO WATCH DOG FIGHTS
WHAT kind of person finds pleasure in seeing animals ripped apart? The accused were smartly dressed in polo shirts.Could they belong to some organisation? What awful people, hate them!
THIS dog fighting is barbaric. Let the guilty ones work at animal shelters cleaning out the cages and picking up the pooh. No gloves!
THANKS FOR CARING FOR PATIENTS
THE last few months I have had to visit the Provincial Hospital. A huge thank you must go to the women of "Slice4Life" who each day hand out a sandwich and tea free to all patients waiting to see doctors. For some this may be the first food or drink they have had all morning. God bless you all.
UNIONS WRECKING THIS COUNTRY
WHEN the component export trade has been lost to China, Japan, Korea or Brazil through unreliable labour strikes the workers will have shot themselves in the foot and destroyed their own jobs. When they are suddenly unemployed they will wonder what happened. The unions are wrecking this country.

DRIVER CLEARLY TRAUMATISED
ALL those who think Sanele May is guilty of any wrongdoing should think again. He is clearly traumatised, and he will never get over what has happened to the victims and their families. Get the correct details and don't jump to conclusions from hearsay. This can happen to any driver on our roads, including you. It was an accident!
I DO not think he is to blame. He was most likely told to drive the truck or go, and needing a job he had to drive.
FIX TRAFFIC DEPARTMENT CHAOS
HOW many more must be robbed in front of the traffic department in Korsten? This week someone's car tape player was ripped out. Where do all these funny characters come from all of a sudden in front? They rob the people. Please authorities, do something drastic about them, we beg you. We are not safe there.
THE traffic department in Korsten is useless. People standing for hours outside, due to a go-slow, faint in the heat, because only five people are let in at a time. Some people have been in the queue since 8am and are still waiting to be helped. The metro should fire the people responsible, because people cannot renew their licences, make appointments, etc.

SOMETHING STINKS IN TRIBUNAL WRANGLE
JUDGE Hlope: is the judiciary that stupid to create an illegal tribunal? Now the judges refuse to testify! Something stinks! Pressure from No1? The reality of cadre deployment takes centre stage!
WHY ARE PAROLE CONDITIONS SECRET?
WHY are the parole conditions for Jackie Selebi a secret? Is it so that when they are seemingly broken any excuse can be used to cover up?
