Whiskey should be kept as prize
Madam -- Mary Sullivan, Cork, writes suggesting "give chocolates for best letter". Oh no, I say. Keep the whiskey. Gosh, we have crosses and vexations and dark tunnels enough, without an extra spare tyre. I'd have to eat the lot, if it was chocs! The whiskey, in moderation, is best.
Mind you, I won on occasion, even if you think I'm an old fogey. I read and love the Sunday Independent and won crosswords in it over 60 years ago!
