Tuesday Talk

1. We continue to gripe over the declining value of the Jamaican dollar, yet our business people continue to use scarce foreign exchange to import a variety of goods which could easily be produced here. An example is coconut husk (used in gardening) made from the bark of dried coconut ... seriously, no one here could think of buying a machine and gathering all the coconut debris to make that product?

2. So did the goodly gentleman ever get the chik-V? He had publicly expressed his desire to be afflicted but he never reported whether he got it and what it felt like. Many of those who are still twisted and contorted in the aftermath of the chik-V attack are asking when will their problems end.

3. Ridiculous does not begin to describe these grandfathers who can be seen wheeling their own babies around town. There they are showing off their prize, if only they could hear the comments or observe the sneers of onlookers.

4. Retired or discarded politicians appear to always have a berth at the institution for higher learning. It seems that there is much to learn from these once powerful men and women so they are quickly scooped up as soon as they become available.
