SUE Burrough (Short Takes, 13/6) hits the nail on the head. I am prepared to offer my life's meagre life savings to anyone who invents a gadget that can be pointed at speakers and so neutralise the noise (posing as music) that drives most of us mad.

TO Grame Kime (Short Takes, 13/6), we agree ... bring back the unicorn, the important part of the ad.

THE state Liberal government has minimal interest in the well-being of the Hunter Street precinct - their prime concern has always being unlocking inner-city land for its developer allies. Now that Sydney's light rail is nearing completion I wonder if they can resist the temptation to close the Sydney underground and sell off its tunnels as sites for commercial development.

CONGRATULATIONS to Hymel Hunt for sharing his state of mind at Merewether bowlo last week. He gave us all courage to be proactive in curbing the Black Dog.
Tim Roberts, Newcastle
JUST wondering, how did Brad Hill go at his high school science class?
Mac Macguire, Charlestown
IN reply to Peter Gleeson (Short Takes, 14/6) it is the sole ambition of the Liberal government to abolish unionism in this country. And nothing would please them more than having the unions telling the construction companies what they should be doing. That would be just making more ammunition for their union bashing campaign. It is the employer's responsibility to make sure the job site is safe for its employees and it is the work cover inspectors who are employed by this liberal government who are supposed to make sure they do. They are the ones who should be doing the inspections, not the unions.

PETER Devey (Letters, 14/6) should be pleased that the ABC is socially-biased to balance up most of the commercial media. As a bonus he doesn't have to listen to funeral ads.
George Paris, Rathmines
BRAD Hill, (Short Takes, 14/6), those minerals were formed during tremendous upheaval. Except for coal, the other elements are from the formation of heavenly bodies. Coal is from sudden climate change, sweeping all before it. Not the times for writing Short Takes to the Herald.
Graeme Tychsen, Rankin Park
DR Kathleen Wild, I'd suggest our children face a far more unhealthy future if they are continually subjected to falsities and garbage from climate change alarmists (Letters, 14/6). There is no hope for our children when people continually fill our kids' heads with rubbish.
Brad Hill, Singleton
WELL, after reading and re-reading Brad Hill's letter (Short Takes, 14/6), my mind is certainly boggling. What is his point?
