Your Letters

"One-day old baguette is considered the anti-Christ of bread by many French people." Having visited France, and bought bread as a tourist, I though it was de rigueur.
Rob Falconer, Llandough, Wales

Re Wednesday letters: I was working alongside a pharmacist yesterday who told me he was born in Macedonia and he pronounced it with a soft "C"
Dave Moore

The proper pronunciation of Macedonia depends on where you live and what language you speak. In almost any (Western) language, it's Macedonia with an s for the c, while in Macedonian itself (and probably in other Balkan languagues) the c is pronounced as a k. Hence Macedonia's top level domain name, .mk, or its Olympic code which is MKD.
Johan van Slooten, Urk, The Netherlands

Francis (Wednesday's letters): The phrase "It's deja vu all over again" was coined by Yogi Berra.
