Sir: I have a problem with art of the kind that has just won the Turner prize. It is not that I love it, nor indeed that I loathe it.

In short, I do not react, even with hostility, and I get nothing out of the time spent on the exercise.

Sir: Tim Harrison ('The tall are tired of being looked down on', 3 August) has plainly not come to terms with the lofty ideals that we giants aspire to. I have found it a great advantage to be 6ft 8in. At social gatherings, you know that if people don't see you, it is because they do not want to; conversely, it is easy at parties to spot pretty girls from a great distance.
