THE EDITOR, SIR:
A COUPLE days ago, a release was issued to the international press about certain aspects of our athletics programme. It appears that the timing of this release was deliberate. It comes at a time when Jamaicans are still walking high with the success of our athletes in Moscow.
Even if what was said is true, what would motivate an obviously educated citizen of Jamaica to make this disclosure, and why could she not find an alternate way of dealing with this issue?
This release will definitely impact the confidence of all our international stars, our countrymen and country women who are doing so well and earning a livelihood for themselves and their country.
It is time for us to unite around Jamaica and do what we can to help the country move forward. We can disagree with each other, but always defend our country. Maybe we need a national slogan like 'Home of the Best'.
