take a couple of minutes to write to the mayor (or email) and ask him why he swapped cars. At the very least the ratepayers who care about the environment deserve an explanation, and if enough of us write then perhaps he will recon- sider his decision.

PS. I must confess that my grand- children helped me send this email to you because I could not find a postal address for your publication.


Dildo Irrelevant And Unnecessary I would like to make a complaint about some of the content in the January issue of The Beast. Although I saw the warning on the front page indicating that there was an image of a certain [dildo] inside, I did not understand why it was necessary to put this image in the magazine.


If this image was in relation to


a relevant article, then I may under- stand the need to include it within the publication. However to place

Even with the warnings placed on the front of the publication, children are very likely to pick up the publication and flick through it. Placing a warning on the front does not absolve you and allow you to put anything in the publication that you wish. This is a community publication, not a men’s magazine and I believe that this is an unjusti- fied image to be used when there is no relevance to anything within the publication.


I am a fairly open minded 28 year old but feel that the use of this type of image in a community publication like yours goes way beyond the use of artistic licence. I was very disappointed with the recent issue when I feel that in general this is a great publication to let you know what is happening in your local area. Joanna Nash


I know this is unnecessary as I’m sure you’ve already received enough complaints to not need any more, but I’m going to go ahead and say it anyway.


The confronting image on the index page of your January is- sue is bizarre, incongruous and therefore could only be described as an act of perversion on behalf of the editor or publisher. It’s not necessary to have that sort of thing in a family magazine. To have it followed up by an article entitled “Mayor Pollutes Randwick With His Penis Extension” is more the sort of headline you would expect from an underground high school student magazine. NB, the warning “please supervise your kids when reading this month’s Beast...” does not make up for what follows.


Sensing a bit of a theme in the January issue, I then noticed the headline on page 8 “Thank F#@% It Doesn’t Rhyme With Kevin!” I refer again to the high school student magazine. It was only later that I
