EASTER is coming and the old negative theories are trotted out again (Letters, 5/4).The Old Testament foretold more than 200 references to the birth, life, crucifixion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and they all came to pass. People need to read the complete story before going into print.
Rose Latimer,MetfordI READ about the woman complaining about the ukulele players. She wants to be thankful they weren’t bagpipes. I’d suggest she gets down to her music shop, buys one and joins them, she might enjoy herself.
John Keen,GatesheadGOOD on you Nuatali, at least you are spending money around the city. The council isn’t.
Raymond Clark,MerewetherI’VE been asked several times to stop whinging about the V8 event. I have made several attempts to raise the issue of duty of care for the elderly and frail. Supercars, NCC and DNSW have now been passed the mic. What do they have to say? What is their plan A? What is their plan B? I am now quietly waiting for an answer.
Scott Cooper-Johnston,NewcastleNUATALI Nelmes: You paid $905 on car washes? Ever heard of a bucket of soapy water and a sponge? I’m Labor to my core, but you will never ever get my vote again.
Colin Geatches,MayfieldMARRIAGE is under attack. Everyone should be given the chance to preserve it by saying “No change to marriage”.
Clive Jensen,MerewetherALTON Bowen (Letters, 7/4) the best thing about being an atheist is that I can sleep well knowing that no children have been slaughtered in the name of my faith.
Steve Barnett,Fingal BayI AGREE with Garry Robinson (Letters, 7/4). I find the lord mayor’s expenditure quite reasonable for her position. Maybe they’re right, Newcastle is becoming a bunch of whingers. I think maybe there’s another agenda here trying to discredit her at every chance.
Anne Henderson,BelmontOH how sad. The article about misogyny and Beauty and the Beast by Dr Kim Huynh(‘The alluring misogyny of Beauty and the Beast’, Herald,7/4) is demonstrating how much the fact that a fairy tale, which has entertained millions of children, has been lost to political correctness gone so very wrong.
