A whole Paper Monitor entry dedicated to the subject of tights. Can we now, at last, lay to rest the "mystery" of MM's gender?
Footless tights - further guidance is needed. Do you wear them with socks and sandals? Men throughout the nation have a right to know.

Does any one know - does the lack of foot in a pair of tights change their efficacy as a fan belt substitute?
Classic Daily Mail stuff. Front page story complaining of "snoopers" finding out people's salaries. Inside story reporting salary of £91,000 paid to Birmingham council employee.

With regards Morgan Sexton's Tuesday letter I have a lot of similar definitions from "Professor Branestawm's Dictionary", first published 1973, such as "hirsute" - lady's costume; and "allocate" - a greeting for Catherine. Perhaps other readers have older examples?

James of Stockport and others should be grateful for BBC pronunciation efforts. The presenter of the six o'clock news here is forever making embarrassing mistakes. The other day, for a story on Pune in India, she happily pronounced it all the way through to rhyme with "tune."

MM note: According to the pronunciation guide, it is more like poo-na.
The latest research tells us that people who go to bed feeling lonely and sad feel more energetic in the morning. Hardly surprising. Presumably they get a better night's sleep than those who go to bed not feeling lonely, who no doubt have better things to do than sleep.

What’s the point of "fishless" fish cakes? Either they are fish cakes or they are not.
