Reading on the bus


Dear Hillary,

I never see the children reading books on the school busses. All they do is play with their mobile phones, no wonder their English skills are so poor. What do you think Hillary? Any hope for the youngsters?


Dear George,

That is very deep, and really light years away from the purposes of this column. However, I do thank you for taking the time to contact me. If you are a regular reader, Petal, you will know that I despair at the spellings some of the correspondents use. Their and there totally misunderstood, and I would imagine that better proficiency in English would make the spellings improve, but I am not the one who knows.
