AS THE president announced South Africa was going into lockdown, my husband squeezed my hand. It was just a little tightening of the fingers but it said so much. It said, we’ll be okay as we go through one of the most difficult challenges we’ve ever faced as a nation. It said, we’ll get through this tough time and it will be hard, but it will not break us. It said, we’re part of a family who’ll support one another, part of a community who are going to work together to stay safe, part of a country where the president has taken courageous steps to keep South Africans alive. It said, this is a time when we’ll all open our hearts to everyone, no matter what walk of life they’re from. It said,…

DON’T JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS I LIVE on the first floor of a block of flats. Every morning I hear a boy of about 10 and his mother. He always speaks loudly and sometimes it feels as if he’s making too much noise. I’ve wondered why his mother doesn’t stop her child from making such a racket while they wait for his transport to arrive. This morning I stood by the window wanting to see what all the loud talking was about. The boy is a special-needs child so that’s why he speaks the way he does.

The most remarkable prediction about the coronavirus was made by American psychic Sylvia Browne as shared with her readers in her book End of Days (2008). “In around 2020 a severe pneumonia-like illness will spread throughout the globe, attacking the lungs and the bronchial tubes and resisting all known treatments,” she wrote. “Almost more baffling than the illness itself will be the fact that it will suddenly vanish as quickly as it arrived, attacking again 10 years later, and then disappear completely.” There’s some good after all in the doom with the assurance that “it will suddenly vanish as quickly as it arrived”. The question now will be the interpretation of how quickly the “quickly” will be. WALTER MANGOLD, HOUTBAY A few hundred years ago most doctors wore black frock coats so blood splatters…

in brief

To the woman who phoned me supposedly from Nedbank to get my banking details, but really to steal my money: shame on you. Go do something productive. May God forgive you. NO FOOL, SMS Why are so many people trying to walk forward but keep looking back? We were all looking forward to a new beginning when Nelson Mandela was released and became president. I’m so disappointed about what’s become of his wishes and dreams. DISILLUSIONED, SMS Be careful when sending your husband to buy groceries. My husband would only go to one cashier for a few months. It wasn’t long before I found out she was his girlfriend on the side. I told him to leave as I’ll never love him again. And as for this cashier, I’ll continue to make her life…
