Re: "The celebrity culture of fantasy", Letters, June 8.



Somebody has been having a bad spelling day. JC Wilcox (or perhaps an overworked sub-editor) should be informed that Rudyard Kipling’s surname was not spelled Kippling. Nor is Justin Bieber’s spelled Beiber. Che Guevara, were he alive today, would be annoyed to find his name misspelled as Chez Guavara. To my knowledge, he had nothing to do with guavas, although he may have eaten a few. But Chez Guavara would make an excellent name for a fruit shop.
