Reserved judgment


Sir, – When the pandemic finally ends, might we perhaps revert to the old world custom in which we simply “booked” tickets for trains, events, concerts, and so on? I have never quite grasped the concept of “pre-booking”, and always have an uneasy feeling that by merely “booking” something I must be near the back of the queue. – Yours, etc,
