Reader's letter: Good old days.

Byline: Clifford Jones,

THE article in the Daily Post of January 17 contained quotes that farmer Tony Martin had been refused parole by the faceless wonders on the grounds that he ``did not live in the 21st century'' and was therefore a danger to burglars. What Tony Martin did was wrong, but has paid his debt to society. If living in the 21st century means going to war with Iraq against the wishes of the country , or allowing burglars the freedom of robbing without the deterrent of prison for the first and maybe their second of fence , then Tony Martin was right when he said things were better 40 years ago. Clifford Jones, bye-mail
