I refer to the correspondence stimulated by Professor Richard Dawkins's article on astrology which, I must confess, took me aback both by its volume and its venom. Can supposedly rational people really become so exercised by something so trivial?
I shall be interested to see whether this week's article "China starves babies by the thousand" (7 January) prompts a similar surge of purple- faced, spluttering public outrage. Sadly, I doubt that it will.
