    Junta fuels rap views

    News, Postbag, Published on 29/10/2018

    » The rap song <i>Prathet Ku Mee</i> by Rap Against Dictatorship has gone viral (BP, Oct 27). It was spurred on with publicity it could only dream of thanks to the adverse reaction to it by the junta and our ever-busy police force. Of course I have not looked at the video on YouTube as I don't wish to get into trouble, but I'm told it is a corny imitation of African-American rap stars, complete with compulsory obscenities and gang-related hand waving.

    Doing right by the children

    Life, Yvonne Bohwongprasert, Published on 29/10/2018

    » Henrietta H. Fore couldn't be happier with the way Thailand has made progress in promoting and protecting children's rights in the past 70 years of its presence -- by that name -- in the Kingdom. The Unicef executive director was recently in Thailand, and the success stories of the country through years of governmental policies and support from other agencies couldn't fail to put a smile on her face: the country has almost a 100% rate of birth and healthcare registration, access to clean drinking water, sanitation and primary-school attendance.

    » Re: "THAI 'sorry' as pilots snag 1st-class seats", (BP, Oct 20). The apology offered by Thai Airways International president Sumeth Damrongchaitham, for the behaviour of THAI's two pilots, who refused to take off unless two of the airline's first-class passengers were ejected from their seats for the company's off-duty pilots, is not enough.

    Noisy riders are relevant

    News, Postbag, Published on 07/10/2018

    » Re: "Summary execution", (PostBag, Oct 6). Unfortunately, my letter was cruelly edited to the point that it made little sense. In my original, I included photographs in support, and said that although a (very weak) argument could be made for motorcycles riding on the footpath against the flow of traffic, none can be made for those that ride on the footpath with the flow of traffic.
