The pursuit of reparations for slavery
Dear Editor, If CARICOM and by extension the Bahamian government are that sensitive about slavery, which occurred in this region over 200 years ago, perhaps they should refocus their misguided efforts to sue various countries for slavery reparations...
When will The Bahamas benefit Bahamians?
Dear Editor, When will The Bahamas benefit Bahamians and the people of The Bahamas move beyond eating from the crumbs that sometimes fall from foreigners’ tables? The political dilapidation of our great Bahamaland is rapidly racing toward its dem...
Government, taxation and debt
Dear Editor, It’s become almost cliche these days to point out how many governments are broke beyond belief. In The Bahamas, our “official” debt-to-GDP ratio might yet be below the statistical point of no return at 63 percent. In Japan, wher...

The deputy prime minister’s apology for dirty New Providence
Dear Editor, The deputy prime minister apologized for the dirt and weeds on New Providence streets. Regrettably the deputy spent a year and a half “fixing” a system he met working perfectly well. As the saying goes: “If it ain’t broke...
Is suing for slavery a good idea?
Dear Editor, The proposal to sue England, France and Holland for reparations for slavery is an excellent one. Perhaps we should also sue the relevant African tribal groups who subjugated and sold so many of their own race into bondage. Maybe the S...
A response to ‘The Cubans and the marines’
Dear Editor, I read with interest the above captioned letter to the editor published in your Friday, October 11, 2013 edition. I note that the writer as a Bahamian was embarrassed by the attack (the video part of it clearly fraudulent) perpetrated ...
