Reader Comments

Some recent reader emails and responses: Comment: From Byter Morris, in response to the pic last week showing the graffiti on the side of the house: What about “I like Tabbouleh but hate Hommos!!!” somewhere in Newtown. Response: Morris is referring to a well known bit of 1980’s graffiti that was on the wall of the car park at the corner of Parramatta Road and Missenden Road in Camperdown, Sydney.
