LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
I have just reviewed the new issue and I am more than impressed. Your articulation and poignancy inspires and excites me. This is truly a magazine on the cutting edge of time. I think the time is right for you to forge ahead and take a role in the NGO sector. There’s so much potential for you!

I completely agree with the aims of the organisation Plane Stupid. We should fly less, but not necessarily to help the environment. In my opinion, flying less would save more human lives. You only have to watch the news to know how many tragic plane crashes there have been in recent months. I think this is an appropriate time to remember the many lives that would have been saved if less people had been on board the planes on September 11th, 2001. Less flights mean less opportunities for terrorists to strike.

An Interesting Read
As a newcomer to Society Today I would like to congratulate the Magazine on the diversity of subjects such as "Britain's Foreign Bosses", "Is Libya Coming in from the Cold" and "A Tale from Bolivia" and the interest aroused by them. We rarely see such items on the television. I was particularly interested in the state of unrest in Bolivia and the difficulty in bringing the people better living conditions although the original Government has tried but failed. Let us hope that the new Government will have some measure of success. The people of El Alto where the uprising started will be very interested to see what will happen. Society Today is a good, interesting read.
