Ayyaz, Ealing RegARDing yesterdays article about chemical-free deodorants. some plant extracts are also irritants or toxic, so to suggest natural chemicals are safe by default is wrong. Modern life would not exist without synthetic chemistry, so can we ditch the superstition and just ask, is it proven safe and effective? if the answer is yes, and it can be made sustainably, who cares where the deodorant comes from? Tom, Sustainable Chemistry Researcher, Imperial College Another thing Dodegreescosttoomuch?IsShaheensetforsuperstardom? Will Palm Pre rival the iPhone?

The family should have had the respect to have a private funeral rather than inviting the whole world to attend. It wasnt our place.

It is such a shame people werent so generous to him while he was still with us. Abi, north London MIchael was the greatest enter- tainer of all time. It is fitting that he left this world as he lived it -- with music. he will be sadly missed, but his songs will last forever. G Howarth, Primrose Hill The service last night taught us a great deal about Michael. Who knew he was in the Guin- ness Book Of Records as the pop star who had g ive n t h e most to char- ity? he lived with smears and lies all his life and it is good to see the truth lives on in death. Navid, SE27 he Was a wonderful entertainer, but none of us knew him. Why this grief ? I liked his songs, but he hasnt made anything good for 15 years, so in that sense nothing has really changed.
