To hitch or not
Sir, – With children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, some of whom reside in the areas most concerned, I was greatly heartened by another grumpy old man having the courage that too few of us have when discussing lifestyles with our offspring.

I hope that after reading Lawrence Rifkin’s “Thumbing rides, thumbing noses” (Grumpy Old Man, June 20), more of the likes of me will openly voice their opinions on the subject with their families.


Sir, – Since the tragic kidnapping of the three yeshiva youngsters, a solution has to be found to curb the terrible spate of attempted kidnappings in Israel.
