Moon landing in 1969 was one small step for scrapbooking kids | Brief letters

Neil Armstrong | KLM | Boris Johnson | Jeffrey Epstein and Donald Trump | Phoebe Waller-Bridge | Ed Sheeran

Perhaps some of the poignancy identified in Suzanne Moore’s piece (G2, 16 July) can be attributed to the fact that those of us who added Neil Armstrong to our book of explorers as children didn’t expect him to be on the last page, but the first page of a new and much bigger book.

• KLM’s policy is surely mistaken (KLM tells breastfeeding women they may be asked to cover up, 18 July). What they should be doing is covering up those who are offended. Put a nice rug over these disturbed people’s heads and they can retreat back into the womb.

• As HL Mencken once noted, the proper relationship between a journalist and a politician should be akin to that between a dog and a lamp-post. Your coverage of Boris Johnson this week has been exemplary.

• When showing photographs of Jeffrey Epstein enjoying the company of Donald Trump (Report, 18 July), could you give an indication which one of them should be more embarrassed by this friendship?

• I read Thursday’s paper from cover to cover, but couldn’t find that day’s reference to Phoebe Waller-Bridge and/or Fleabag. Is there a problem?
John Kennan

• Ed Sheeran should be worried. History is not always kind to those who were the subject of giant statues in Moscow (Shape of you, 16 July).
Michael Cunningham
