I know there are loads who will disagree with me and that’s okay. I’d be disappointed if the cycle lane had any major negative consequence for Island Bay residents. Because I cannot see how it could, apart from slight inconvenience, I have to look forward to it being completed so that we will know for sure. Michael McCormack, Island Bay
Purpose built cycleway makes great sense

ton windblown faces! I observe more rude passengers than drivers Good on you drivers who have to put up with so many split shifts that they continually have to consult their plastic special roster cards. The only complaint to the company is about the dark glass for the passengers, it is hard to recognise where to get off. But thank you drivers! Paul Franken, Strathmore Park

THUMBS UP to life. Oh what a wonderful world and place we get to spend time in before we die. Let’s all live, laugh and love each other and the world! Free love!
with the weekly number of hours that suit her. However, get this straight, Ms Rigby: what a person likes and chooses is not necessarily good and wise; and because of our bias to selfishness, we are more likely to choose what is bad and foolish. Further, what is of later date is not necessarily better and more desirable than what was/is older. Of all the factors causing the progressive ruin of our Western society over the last 50 years, permissiveness and feminism have been the chief culprits. Abusing me won’t alter this. H Westfold, Miramar
Passengers ruder than drivers
Dear Ed, I can’t wait for the Island Bay Cycleway to begin so that all the talk about it can stop. A purpose built cycleway makes great sense to me. The world will not end as a result of it – business will not fail, homes will not devalue. I think it is a great use of ratepayer’s money and am delighted to see a project which seems tangible and rewarding on so many levels.
THUMBS UP to Alana’s new brunette locks.
The progressive ruin of our western society…
Dear Ed, almost every day there is reference to a bus passenger complaints. Today’s Dom Post (August 10) adds a summary covering six months. Every day there are thousands of happy passengers. Where in the world have you so many saying a cheerful ‘thank you driver’ as they leave the bus? Full credit to these multitasking drivers who provide so many safe and happy journeys. The cheerful yellow busses put a smile on many Welling-
THUMBS UP to the Cook Strait News. Always the highlight of an otherwise pretty dull week.
THUMBS UP to ‘Ridley’ the Olive Ridley Sea Turtle who has left Wellington Zoo and will be rehabilitating at Kelly Tarltons in Auckland.
LETTERS to the editor
Dear Ed, out of all the hysterical, unreasoned letters attacking my published views over the years, I award the top prize to the reaction of Tracey Rigby (CSN, August 6). My letter of July 16 didn’t apply to her or her own circumstances, but to mothers who unnecessarily drive their children to and from school in 4WD vehicles. About mothers who have a paid job, I have more respect for them than for those who don’t feel like working, so think the taxpayers and ratepayers ought to support them and any children they might have; and I don't deny a woman’s legal right to have a paid job as a choice, or a job
THUMBS DOWN to cycleway naysayers. They need to be less negative. It will be a great community asset.
