Letters In Brief
Wednesday 10 March 1999

Sir: Europe is moving towards greater integration and, in general, I welcome that. My motivation is not cheaper food or standardised working hours - it is the hope that we never see another European war. Our process of integration must be similar to the experience of the separate states of America. It is interesting to speculate what would have happened if a state had chosen not to adopt the dollar. Now you can use the US dollar in most countries of the world. How well do you think you'd get on with, say, Ohio dollars?
Sir: Rapid translation, printing and distribution has already rushed Monica's Story to our distant corner of France, where the local supermarket has set a pile of it, with what I think in England is called Gallic flair, right at the heart of a massive display of the Guide Michelin 1999, also just out. As you might expect of France, the Guide is fast disappearing, Monica not.
