Jamaica Gleaner Commentary
published: Friday | August 3, 2007

EDITORIAL - Civility, maturity needed on the hustings
Some Jamaicans have complained about the undue length of this year's summer-long election campaign. Nevertheless, it's a blink compared to the American marathon. Half a year old, the U.S. presidential campaign still has more than a year to run.

Between fiction and fact

I COULD not really believe my eyes. It was an entire web page dedicated to me! One might think I would be pleased with my new-found fame, yet this page was, in no uncertain terms, bashing me, suggesting I was bashed by my husband... - Tara Clivio

Assessing social progress

AMONG THE cruel ironies of Jamaica's political system and culture is that the heaviest support for the parties and participation in elections come from the most economically-deprived and socially-neglected communities... - Colin Steer

In days of old

HUMAN BEINGS, it is said, have selective memories. We choose to remember some things and pretend that we have no knowledge of other matters. Some of us remember the 1959 elections and some of us have many memories of the 1980 elections... - Heather Robinson
