Re Disney's new African-American princess. Bonnie Greer says: "It's probably a combination of our new president, a feeling that change has swept the land and thinking about how they can get involved in this change."
I think you will find that, like most big-budget animation films, this has been in production for the best part of six or seven years, meaning the concept was agreed upon long before the President Obama ever decided to run for the top job. Believe it or not, he is not responsible for every cultural change in American life. I'm just pleased to see Disney back to 2D animation - what they do best.

So according to 7 days 7 questions and which Jedward is which, "like Ant and Dec, they try to always stand on the same side to help people differentiate". I find it quite easy to differentiate between Ant and Dec, due the fact they're not twins and look completely different anyway.

For the first time in absolutely years, I got 7 out of 7 on the news quiz. Any chance I can have some kudos? Also, can I collect the kudos which I won for back-to-back top six captions from summer '08?

Chookgate (Thursday letters), that may be the definition of osmosis when used metaphorically, but it's not the scientific definition. And since Paper Monitor mentioned a science teacher, the scientific definition is the one that is implied.

I had to reread the first paragraph of this story three times and I'm still not sure I understand what happened...

Dear Pedants' Corner,
Re Paper Monitor's "It's political correctness gone mad..."
No, no, no. It's health and safety gone mad. I refer you to Stewart Lee's recent and excellent TV programme on the distinction for further clarification.

Is it wrong for me to think the health 'n' safety Christmas tree looks quite nice? Also the town centre manager stuck to the public's wishes.

Gerry (Thursday letters), the "sixth form" consists of the sixth and seventh years of secondary school, while the fifth year of secondary school has been referred to as "year 11" since 1990.
