I'm almost as surprised as my postman - and a little embarrassed - to be in receipt of 27p thanks to my 1p request in last Friday's letters. I'm not sure what I'm more concerned about: publishing my address on the Magazine Monitor or that people actually sent me money. Wonderful humanity, though - one anonymous donor sent a gorgeous countryside drawing which is now on my bedroom wall.

So many questions raised by this story. Having recognised he was blind, why was the firm sending him a normally-typed letter? Will the letter of apology be correctly adressed, or even written in Braille?
Can I get in an early nomination for the phrase "elephant in the curriculum" as Most Painfully and Wrongly Contrived Metaphor of 2009?
I know Michael O'Leary is unpopular but does he really need to wear a flak jacket for a press conference?

As one of Monitor's regular grammar pedants, I can't believe you gave 4th place in the caption competition to a caption with a misplaced apostrophe. That should definitely give you negative kudos points.

Re the Atlantis-Google Earth story. Dr Orser's comment that "even if it turns out to be geographical, this definitely deserves a closer look" is pretty interesting. Does he mean to say that something which appears in a particular place on the Earth, which is described in relation to other geographical features ie 620 miles off the coast of west Africa, might not necessarily be geographical.
