    Sour side of sugar

    News, Postbag, Published on 15/11/2019

    » It is interesting to see how the sugar industry has come out against the ban on the three harmful pesticides. The industry claims the ban will drive up the price of sugar. Somehow, the health of consumers and those who work in the industry does not factor into the equation. Everything is always evaluated in profit margins. The price hike would be enough to drive consumers away from sugar in general. I say, good riddance. Reducing sugar consumption would be a healthier decision for all. In fact, a cut to all sweeteners -- natural or artificial -- should be paramount to one's health and well-being.

It may indeed be unfortunate, but self-serving politicians are a Thai political reality, a way of life, and no amount of rhetoric, public or private, will ever bring this practice to an end.

    Feast of metaphors

    News, Postbag, Published on 08/11/2019

    » Re: "Rowing in the same boat", (BP, Nov 6). I was charmed by the rich feast of metaphors produced by Chinese premier Li Keqiang and Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha as they signed the three memoranda of understanding. It was enough to send this dried-up old connoisseur of great rhetoric into raptures of pre-orgasmic ecstasy.
