In the "Consumer group slate dodgy cars" article how can Which? claim "the Auris is likely to offer years of faithful service," when its only been around since February? I'm not saying that there is anything particularly good or bad about it but it seems a little unfair to compare its service history to cars that have been around years longer. It also makes me wonder what MM would drive and would it reveal his/her gender?
Re Richard K Leah's letter about the zero at 10 Downing Street has been crooked. It has been since day one. The offset zero features what we pedantic typographers call "diagonal stress". Altogether different, one assumes, to the rather more directionless stress that happens inside the door.

Regarding one of the "Other Top Stories" listed on the news home page "BBC needs new ideas - viewers". I wouldn't have thought having viewers was a new idea, I would have thought that was fundamental.

In your "How to say: Wimbledon names", you should have mentioned Dementieva - annoyingly pronounced Dem-en-ti-ey-va (with 5 syllables) by the BBC. In Russian it's pronounced Dem-en-tye-va (4 syllables).

Yes but what about Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. Pav-LEE-uch-ENK-ov-aa? Fortunately she was knocked out in the first round (by Miss Hantuchova) but she's still in the girls draw.
Re Tall Tone's letter, well frankly I'm appalled. I go to all the trouble of baking delicious Gordon Brownies to welcome in our new prime minister, and all "Tall Tone" can do is write pedantic letters. I'll have him know the page for sending in 10 Things pictures clearly states you can send in a picture featuring "10 things, or the number 10 somewhere". Harrumph. By the way, there's still most of one left, if anyone wants it. (Not you, Tone.)

Tall Tone, sorry to be pedantic, but it should be "If I were pedantic", not "If I was pedantic".

In complaining about saturation coverage of the iPhone I think Andrew Rowntree, Newcastle upon Tyne, should know that it isn't taxpayers' money, but licence payers'. A pedantic but important difference, as tax is compulsory, but owning a TV is very much not.

Re Spike's observation, not only is this story "US man sculpts cheese presidents" an example of a fromage homage it also represents the only sensible use of American cheese I've come across so far.

Truths from the mouths of babes, pt 847. Looking out the window at today's yet-again grey and damp clouds, my three-year-old asked: "Is it winter?" How best to answer?
