No bathrooms?


1 Some people are asking, how is it possible for a modern uptown restaurant to have a licence to operate when there are no bathroom facilities for the scores of patrons who pour into that place each day in search of healthy food?


Best buddy


2 Believe it or not, executions in the world went up by 15 per cent in 2013. Jamaica's new best buddy, China, is usually at the top of the world list of countries who carry out executions. This is not surprising because there are 55 offences, including economic crimes, which carry the death sentence in that country. Jamaica may want to get some notes from its best friend about how to get rid of its many murderers.


Loud whispers


3 The whispers about elections are growing louder and it seems some people are taking them seriously. Watch for the abundance of goodies that will come pouring out in the next few weeks.


Love for Cuba


4 So now the trips to Cuba are increasing. There was a time when loads of men were heading over there and returning with nubile things on their arms. Now, however, it is families that are trekking over there to see what it's all about in that Spanish-speaking neighbourhood.
