From Prof John V. Orth.
Sir, The illustration that accompanied your Analysis of Greece’s efforts at economic reform (“A marathon to sprint”, July 30) showed ancient Greek athletes with their genitals airbrushed away. Was this choice of illustration by any chance a pictorial comment on whether the current Greek government has the equipment necessary to bring about the needed changes?

I knew that there was a reason I always liked John.
