Spending the people’s money
Dear Editor, When this present government made the decision to initiate VAT, it was based on its claims that all revenue collection would be used to pay down the national debt. I am grateful for the insight Michael Halkitis gave regarding how the f...
Make marijuana and other drugs legal
Dear Editor, Is alcohol legal in The Bahamas? I believe that it is. That has always been the case. In times past (I believe they called it the Bootlegging Era), alcohol was legal in The Bahamas, however, it was illegal in the United States. Some Bah...

Dear Editor, Recently, one of our talented and beautiful young Bahamian professionals, Dionne Benjamin-Smith, said in a Facebook post that she hates when some people refer to election-time as the “silly season”. What she meant, I presume, is th...

We ready now
Dear Editor, One may say or think whatever they wish about the Progressive Liberal Party (PLP), but my party has always risen to the internal and external challenges which we have encountered. We in the PLP do not give up, despair or break off runni...
