The columnist who is as negative as one gets

June 1, 2011 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear editor, After reading the letter, “Freddie Kissoon replies to Mr. Bhagwan”, (KN 29-05-11), can you believe Mr. Frederick Kissoon?  Is this columnist for real?  The virtuous element about the reply was that it was typical Kissoon – twisting the truth, avoiding the hard facts and cuss down a character that is not liked. The […]

Is homosexuality an abomination?

June 1, 2011 | Filed Under Features / Columnists, Stella Says 

Last week I wrote on how homosexuals should be able to choose whom they have sex with (just like anyone else) without feeling adjudged by the rest of society. As expected, I received a couple of responses that steered me back to biblical scripture in an attempt to point out to me the “abomination” of […]

In pursuit of that US visa

June 1, 2011 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor, Some years ago I saw a crowd outside the American Embassy on Main Street. As usual they were all there for one purpose – to obtain a visa for entry into the USA. Among them was a friend of mine who lived in Ituni, a community some thirty-five miles from Linden. He told […]

Corruption is tolerated at GPL

June 1, 2011 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor, Allow me to express my disgust at the GPL Garden of Eden employees’ unprofessional, disrespectful and corrupt attitude. On Saturday, May 21, 2011, a “Bar-B-Que” was held at First Street, Friendship, East Bank Demerara. Apart from the noise nuisance, which has become prevalent in the area, an illegal wire was connected to the […]

The distortions of history continue

June 1, 2011 | Filed Under Letters 

dear Editor, The Independence 26th May issue of the Chronicle sullied its pages with the article by Rakesh Rampertab titled, “Guyana under siege” on page 13. Mr. Norman Yacoob Chapman, the owner of the ill-fated ‘Son Chapman’ called me to express his shock and anger that the writer would perpetuate the myth about what happened […]

“Feminition” to recognise Women’s True Worth

June 1, 2011 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear editor, I wish to give my personal thoughts on Feminition as printed in STABROEK NEWS, Saturday, May 21, 2011. I would like to define a true woman as one who carries that hearing and acts on her own most of the times.  Acts of KINDESS AND DEEDS through her life are hallmarks. The feminine […]

Smoking dangers

June 1, 2011 | Filed Under Editorial 

Speaking recently on “World No Tobacco Day”, Minister of Health Leslie Ramsammy bemoaned the lack of regional cooperation on reaching a standard on labelling and packaging of cigarettes. This lassitude ignores the incredible devastation wrought by this scourge. The figures alone are very stark: Extensive prospective epidemiologic data clearly establish that cigarettes cause over three […]

Modify the magistracy

June 1, 2011 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor, I had the displeasure of recently sitting a whole day in the Georgetown Magistrates’ court in Middle Street. I shall not mention the Court’s number but it was conducted by a woman who was loud, insensitive and authoritarian. What she did for the large majority of cases that came before her was to […]

Some people must face the reality

June 1, 2011 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor Some people just find it pleasurable attacking the Jagdeo PPP/C Administration. They do so for different reasons; for psychological comfort, to stroke their enlarged personal ego, to convince others they are “bright”, to show that they have all the answers and to gain self-recognition if not self adoration. Some attack the Administration because […]

BILL COTTON/REFORM

June 1, 2011 | Filed Under Bill Cotton/Reform, Features / Columnists 

Bill can get personal. Very personal with some people. Bad and Good. Bill was gobsmacked on reading the Guyanese Honours list to find his personal friend Charles ‘Bonnie’ Ramson, the Attorney General, had been given an Order of Roraima – the second highest national award. Well deserved too. Bill will declare an interest and take […]

National Awards ceremony to be held at Monkey Mountain in honour of Barney Johnson

June 1, 2011 | Filed Under Features / Columnists, Freddie Kissoon 

Who are the biggest clowns and the most talked about jokers in power in politics anywhere in the world today? I know your first utterance would focus on Silvio Berlusconi, the Prime Minister of Italy. Before he came on stage, journalists and world leaders found Gaddafi of Libya a court jester. Willing to say the […]

POWER SHARING AND TRUST

June 1, 2011 | Filed Under Features / Columnists, Peeping Tom 

Power sharing does not require trust; but power sharing without trust will quickly descend into power grabbing. Power sharing failed in Northern Ireland. Power sharing failed in South Africa. Constitutionally entrenched power sharing was contemptuously ignored in Fiji. In Zimbabwe, where there was a negotiated process of power sharing following disputed elections, power sharing at […]
