So Transport for London (part of the Mayor of London's responsibilities) urges Londoners to walk 2km a day (the distance from Vauxhall to Victoria stations, for example) to improve fitness and cut pollution... on the day that the world's best air pilots arrive to participate in a major air race to be held in London, enthusiastically supported by the Mayor of London (at least according to the air race website)! No double standard there, then!

I like the way the BBC is trying to make itself seem more hip and street, according to the headline: World owes US a debt, says Brown. Maybe they do? After all WE did invent the steam engine, TV and English.

I'm surely not the only one that thought Gordon Brown was suggesting the world owed us a debt, rather than the US? I mean I know we've given them football, cricket, rugby and then allowed them all to beat us at them, but I'm not sure that the Romans didn't do more for the world.

Thank-you for clearing up some of the misconceptions regarding epilepsy (myths about epilepsy). It can be a real pain to come round and find some fool with his hand in your mouth.

Is "Spears guard faces battery charge" the most ambiguous headline ever? Every word has at least two meanings, and all except battery can be read as a noun or a verb - I first read it as "Spears are used to guard battery chargers for the face"!

Re more pop stars being called Paul - I hate to tell you this, but Paul McCartney's name is James, not Paul. Also, does the list include people like Gary Glitter, whose name was Paul, not Gary?
Hmmm, tenuous use of a celebrity photo alert - in the story about Guy Ritchie's new film, there's a photo of him and Madonna with the caption that they got married in 2002... Not very relevant, and all it does is strike fear into us that it would be another Swept Away horror!
The bright side of the floods - "Christmas dinners could even be without sprouts this year."

Re: Dog Mess CCTV nets human - I really feel that the phrase "the matter was now in the hands of the police" is a little tasteless to say the least. Let's hope they wore gloves.

And there was me thinking that this was going to be another David Beckham story...

Regarding the collective noun for monitor fans, I can't think of one at the moment but the best collective noun I've ever heard of is a crash of rhinos.
Trish, from East Yorkshire (Letters, 24 July)- perhaps Humberside Police have found away of keeping their crime rate down, by policing an area that doesn't exist anymore?
I notice that the police are complaining of videos on the web containing "violent footage of children fighting". I await to see the non-violent footage of children fighting.
Re the top e-mailed stories and felines, has the weather, which is always in conversations, lost its top spot? After all, lately we all know it has been 'raining CATS and dogs'!

All of those cat letters on Thursday left me 'feline' a little funny... Gah, could have used that for Punorama!

Re cats. This morning when I got up and went out at 0600 one of our cats had hoicked a goldfish out of our pond and left it on the garden path, obviously dead. Being a bit busy I left it there. When I got back, still a bit busy, I left it there some more (it was only a goldfish, after all). Shortly after 0800 I went out again with my children and we all gingerly skirted the body, at which point it moved. Of course not, I thought, but when I looked closer I could see its gill gasping feebly. When I picked it up it wriggled vigorously and when I put it back in the pond it swam happily down into the depths. That fish had been out of water for more than two hours as an absolute minimum. Surely this is some kind of record? I shall be testing the cat's powers of endurance underwater this evening.
