Tuesday Talk

IMF and justice

1 Many people are wondering what will it take the administration to complete the new courts building in downtown Kingston. Some are suggesting that the only things that get done with any urgency these days can only be at the behest of the IMF. If the IMF were somehow made to understand that the administration and delivery of justice are important to creating a just and prosperous society, maybe, just maybe, it will be done.

High weed

2 Little backyard farms are springing up all over as more persons become convinced that the weed can provide a cure for their ailments. Eyebrows were raised recently when one from society's top shelf had guests over and they noticed the plants. He explained that he had to have his "tea" daily and since he had ample space, why not grow it for himself.

Cricket time

3 Some people are predicting that the drum is beating for Test cricket in the region. The short form of the game, although hated by the purists, will apparently take over if the crowd at Sabina Park is anything to go by.

Going after men

4 Talk about aggression. Some women are really 'turning things up' as they go after men. It doesn't matter if the man is single, if he becomes the object of attraction, he will get all forms of encouragement, including explicit photos - in one case, the display has gone viral and many are now hurting.


5 Pilfering was always a problem for box owners at Sabina Park. The question: whose heads will roll after the massive rampage which occurred recently wherein television sets, even refrigerators, and assorted liquors were reportedly removed? Someone should be held accountable for this security breach.
