THE EDITOR, Sir:
Dennis the Menace, one of my favourite comic-strip characters, in a recent episode, enquired of his mother why she has to pay so much for the items she had acquired in the gift shop.
Perhaps Dennis should enquire of the Government of Jamaica why Jose Marti School, a gift from the people of Cuba, was the most expensive school ever built in Jamaica. (The workers were housed at the Forum Hotel at Port Henderson Road).
Shall we ask Dennis the Menace to enquire why the Cuban light bulbs were so expensive?
