I went to a special 15-minute preview of Avatar, the hotly anticipated sci-fi epic from director James Cameron to be released in December. theres far more to it than just blue aliens, pictured. the 3D was great: this will change movies forever. Patchington, London YAwn. After watching the online trailer, it looks like this movie needs all the hype it can get! Paulo Uccello, London CYnICs have been quick to lay into Avatar after the internet trailer. Listen, geeks, this is meant to be seen as a 3D movie at the cinema. Buy your ticket and put on your special glasses in December. then you can judge. HR, Kew RAisinG tax on alcohol to stop binge drinking isnt the answer. Alcohol is mostly cheaper in europe than in the uK. the difference is kids there are brought up to respect alcohols effects and dont see drinking as cool. Rob, Bucks sinGeR daniel merriweather is a clown for admitting to taking cocaine. its not cool and its not clever. if you have to indulge, do so in private. dont risk encouraging kids by shouting about it.

See thisislondon.co.uk/lite S ome combination of British and Scottish government deci- sions and possible murky deals for UK business in Libya has led to the release of Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset al-megrahi, convicted of killing 270 people in 1988, to return home to a heros welcome, greeted by Libyan leader Colonel Gaddafis son. Though al-megrahi is said to be terminally ill, I dont believe compassion had any- thing to do with this cynical decision. Richard, Harlow Im SCoTTISh and thoroughly ashamed to be so at the moment. What the SNP government calls compassionate others will see as weak, soft and a country easily walked over. It gives a whole new meaning to scot-free. Shameful, shameful, shameful. The SNP should hang their heads in shame. JB, Sussex WoULD those who released him have done so if it was their relatives whod been blown out of the sky? Andy, Highgate WhAT is deeply distressing for the families of victims killed is the man convicted of their murder spent only seven years in prison. his release also e n d s t h e chances of whatever doubts remained about his conviction being resolved in an appeal. Mike, London ComPASSIoN, like forgiveness, was not really the Scottish gov- ernments to give. That belongs to the victims and their families. Alan John, Kent The decision to release al-megrahi is brave and consistent with civi- lised ideals of compassion and forgiveness. Well done the Scots for restor- ing us to the moral high ground. Kev, Bow mANy relatives of the Lockerbie victims do not believe al-megrahi was responsible. We need a full inquiry to find the truth.
