We suburbanites are quite used to being sneered at

FATHERS often tell their daughters never again to darken their doors, but John Osborne is the first I've come across to do it because she likes the suburbs. Osborne's grown-up daughter Nolan surfaced this week, having been cast off at 16 by a fat her whocalled her smug and "devotedly suburban". Why is it that some people seem to think the suburbs are fair game, intrinsically comic? The Times last week claimed loftily (huh! it thinks) that the dumping of the truly terrible Anderson Country by Rad io 4 was a victory for "the vociferous minority that fires handwritten missives at the BBC from the depths of middle England". Apparently there's now something impossibly declasse about handwriting.

Who needs socks when you could have eternal life?

DISTRESSED by the commercialism of Christmas? Depressed that Marks and Spencer is open today for last-minute socks? What your Christmas needs is a bit more spirituality - and luckily, Morris Cerullo is on hand to provide it. The international evan gelistis offering to supply a miracle a week for seven weeks, although it's not entirely clear whether you get the miracles now or have to wait: Cerullo is holding a seven-hour prayer-Athon (he uses capital letters liberally, even in the middle of words ) in January, when he promises to put in a good word for you. But thanks to all the underlining and exclamatory punctuation, the message couldn't be plainer: Satan has launched an attack against SEVEN separate areas of your life, and there's nothing Morr is Cerullo relishes more than a tussle with Satan. Especially if someone else is paying.
