So Ross Leckie says that the way to bluff people is to repeat a clear message with conviction and make connections to bigger issues. Er - isn't that how we ended up in Iraq?

Re: 'Green' funerals. I note that when asked if he had much demand for it, an undertaker replied "I only ever had one customer who wanted a quote for the 'total green package' and she never came back." Let's hope that wasn't due to you know what.

Isn't today's news "Church condemns 'humiliation TV'" somewhat hypocritical? After all, Charlotte Church is hardly blameless in this area. Mind you I was pleased to see the headline (since amended) "Church confirms she is pregnant". Which church is this and when is the new chapel due? Please end this headline confusion now!!!
Rosie (letters 27 February), we may not pronounce baguette or ciabatta in an "anglicised" manner, however the English language is full of foreign words which have been given a distinctive English pronunciation, for example chance, centre, amiable, all French but certainly all with a very different pronunciation in French.

I just scored 7/7 on the weekly world news quiz, then 1/7 on the 7 days 7 questions quiz, and that was a lucky guess. What does this say about me? Other than the fact that I have too much time on my hands?
This week's '7 days 7 questions quiz', asks me to complete the sentence `BBC ordered to hand over BLANK tapes.' What's to complete?

To out-pedant Al (letters 1 March), the title is actually Nineteen Eighty-Four (there's an all-important hyphen in there).

Maul vs Mall? (letters 1 March), I think Maul vs Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi was far more entertaining.

Sorry Ray Lashley (letters 1 March), but I feel I must be pedantic and point out that cows are colour blind. It is merely the movement the causes the animal interest.

And surely "leccy bills" comes from London when the good old London Electricity Company (LEC) ruled the waves...

"The BBC hopes that the deal will help it reach YouTube's monthly audience of more than 70 million users and drive extra traffic to its own website." (BBC strikes Google-YouTube deal) But what if they all want to do Punorama or the Caption Competition?

Re. When new is old (letters 28 Feb), the New Forest dates from 1079.

In addition to Phil B-C's comment re. Monitor's gender, Monitor said "Down the local". This (irritating) idiosyncrasy is peculiar to scousers and surrounding areas. I will also bet it's male.
