At the risk of opening the whole debate again, does the fact the green man will be joined by a countdown clock mean also that the traditional "beep beep beep" is going to be replaced with "de dit, de dit, diddly dit (bong)"?
Kat Murphy, Coventry

Don't you just hate it when you think of the best witty retort days after? (There's a name for this, isn't there?) Of course, the correct reply to Joanna's comment about maths online is: Writing mathematics on the internet is as easy as pi.

Re Paper Monitor: Alexander McQueen's latest offering brings to mind a certain Ben Stiller film, and the evil designer's grand finale collection "Derilicte".

Alexandra, Reading

According to Forbes, the world's fifth richest man is Ingvar Kamprad, of Ikea. His fortune is described as self-made. Well, it would be, wouldn't it?

Aine (Wednesday letters), it is not that God will never speak to those who leave him a message, just that any reply is likely to be posthumous.
