Your Letters

14:22 UK time, Thursday, 16 April 2009

Now the story that followed this headline was a tad too tame.
Busybee, Leh

"I take full responsibility for what happened. That's why the person who was responsible went immediately." Has Gordon Brown resigned without anyone noticing?
Charlie, Oxford

Surely predicting the population of the planet as a whole is a bit easier than predicting that of the UK, since there is no migration to or from the Earth? (Until we start building colonies in space, that is, or aliens land and start incensing Daily Mail readers by taking low-paid jobs.)
Keith, Dublin, Ireland

This gives me an idea for a film...
Lee, Birmingham

Is this what one calls tree surgery?
Lucy P, Ashford, Kent

I was quite surprised and confused when reading the headline "Spam 'produces 17m tons of CO2'". I mean, who would have thought so much electricity would be wasted making a canned meat product, how have they managed that... oh it's about electronic spam, ah, makes more sense now.
Lee Archer, Manchester

Violet, Leicester (Wednesday letters) I think I read somewhere that The World Series is so called as it was originally sponsered by The World Magazine. I'm sure our American readers can confirm or deny this.
Paul, Oxford UK

I'd like to be one of the many people replying to Violet (Wednesday letters) setting straight her egregious slur on the World Series; named after the original sponsor of the seven-game series - the Chicago World newspaper. AND it's not US v Canada, it's the NL champ v the AL champ (NL and AL being the two leagues of baseball over here - akin to the Rugbys League and Union as there as slight differences in rules between the two).
