THE EDITOR, Sir:
I began to read this article, ('Fables and Chinese promises', Sunday Gleaner, September 15, 2013) before looking at who the writer was because the caption was impressive.
The content is excellent except, at age 67, Mrs Simpson Miller should have replaced naivety with wisdom many moons ago. Simpson Miller's age makes the contrast with the young girl in the story of the imp irrelevant.
Portia should have been reflecting the wisdom of Portia in Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice.
I see you have done your research regarding pollution in China and the big corporations polluting the rivers. The Chinese people are suffering from all different forms of cancer, a price they pay for their government's uncompassionate stance for human life and existence.
I have always considered you a People's National Party (PNP) political activist. I respectfully say I believed then that the only thing that separates you from the PNP political 'psychopants' is your education. I must say this article is very refreshing, a pleasant surprise and it has placed you on the pedestal of consciousness. I do thank you for your usual kind cooperation.
