    Bringing order to a population wallowing in chaos

    I do not usually follow up my prior articles, and rather prefer to wait for comments or further refinements, or even total rejection of my theme. These usually don’t come out as many people no longer read anything; some are totally unaware or uncaring about issues; and still others...

    Time for a Moral Referendum

      The British are well known for their dry wit, often satirical humour and sayings accompanied by their exaggerated pronunciations. One of these “crime raises its ugly head” is, for us in Jamaica, a complete understatement, and perhaps we need some clarification or re-definition. Violent crime has various phases...

    The challenge to our leaders: Who will bell the cat?

      Happy 2018 to all our readers and to the larger Jamaican population at home and abroad. The year ahead is comprised of two major challenges — the new challenges that will arise as the year progresses; and the previous challenges that could have been resolved but were left...

However, due to the strong, and at times over-vigorous, interchanges there are several precedents to be considered...

    Decisive leadership not impossible, but…

    The building of a nation may not always be a purely objective or even popular subjective voting process (like a referendum), but it does require planning, implementation, and most of all, a leadership that motivates and mobilizes concerted and consistent effort. Leadership requires a special component that enables others...

    By-elections demonstrate the acceptance of the garrison

      “Tis the seasons to be folly, tra la la lee, please elect me!” This is a really special time and after that “only 55 days left for Christmas shopping”. What a bonanza! The by-elections in three constituencies are upon us. Two are non-starters because they are garrisons and...
  • Back to the Future in reality a feeling of déjà vu

    The concept of the future seems designed to eliminate the past and eradicate the use of the euphemism “good old days” that is sometimes anathema to a new generation that cannot comprehend life without every modern convenience. In many ways it can be a blinkered approach to the easily...
