Fr Henry Charles updated 26/05/08

I MUST confess that former US Justice Sandra Day O’Connor fell much in my esteem during the 2000 US presidential election, with her unrestrained bias as the results came in, and nervous second thoughts about resigning, at the sheer prospect of a Gore presidency. That was then...

Prakash Persad updated 02/06/08

The truth is a bitter pill to swallow. Is this why there was a furore recently about an advertisement showing a river lime and in which one of the limers was struck down with chest pains...

 

Tuesday

Dr David E Bratt updated 03/06/08

On Thursday last, an admirably peeved and cynical Tony Lee, on the Tony and Dale radio show, was heard to comment that, in the midst of the mindless weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth over the raped death of Hope Arismandez, the English football team was about to arrive in T&T and by nightfall the headlines in the press would be about them...

It was late in the day and the softness of the afternoon was giving way to the oncoming darkness of night...
