• The precise trigger for the US to join the war against Germany was neither Churchillian diplomacy nor Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor (Letters, 18 February). Roosevelt declared war with Germany on 11 December 1941 after Hitler had, earlier that day, declared war on the US.
• Lucy Mangan is a national treasure (though she will doubtless wince to be so described). Her TV reviews are so intelligent, so funny and so razor-sharp; the one on 100 Vaginas (G2, 20 February) was superb. I am eternally grateful for the pleasure she brings.
