Ginsburg did not give up his religion | Short letters | American News


Your Ruth Bader Ginsburg obituary (September 19) said she had given up her religion. Receiving an award from the Genesis Prize Foundation in 2018, she said, “I am a judge, raised and proud to be Jewish. The demand for justice, peace and enlightenment runs throughout Jewish history and tradition. Does this sound like a woman who had abandoned her religion?

London I read the report on menopause (September 22) with a little astonishment. All these points were raised by Germaine Greer 30 or 40 years ago. No one else was listening? And how sad that so many women feel compelled to cover their beautiful gray hair and empower it.

When Nicola Sturgeon gives a televised press conference, she is accompanied by a sign language interpreter. This is not the case for any English minister. Is it (a) a contempt for the hearing impaired; (b) a kind measure to spare them nonsense; or (c) the inability of the signatories to transmit gibberish?

I was intrigued to see an advertisement in the newspaper (September 19) for apartments in the former BBC TV center for sale between £ 2.5 million and £ 6million. It seems this real estate developer sees Guardian readers like me as richer than I imagined.

I have seen a few £ 2 coins this year (Royal Mint will stop production of £ 2 and 2 pence coins due to excess stock, September 18th). Are most of them stored in 35mm film cartridges?
