The Bahamian political ostrich
Dear Editor, “Any fool can turn a blind eye, but who knows what the ostrich sees in the sand.” “In the land of the ostriches, the blind are king. When politicians bury their head in the sand, ignorance rules the country.” Regardless of the...
A national blunder
Dear Editor, It has been said that history is the witness that testifies to the passing of time. History is our guide because history knows what was, what is and what is yet to come. On January 10, 1967, all eyes were focused on The Bahamas watchin...

The NHI quagmire
Dear Editor, In July 2016, I told y’all that there is no way on Earth that NHI could be rolled out in 2016, despite all the political talk and empty promises, but y’all ain’t listen. At the time, I also told y’all about my colleagues...
MPs have to be more creative than metal detectors
Dear Editor, I was happy to see the article in The Tribune on Tuesday from Project Youth Justice presenting different ways to help rehabilitate our young people, instead of turning our schools into prisons. Our MPs and future MPs have to be ...
