The Editor, Sir: This is in response to R. Anne Shirley's article 'Golding's missed opportunity' in The Sunday Gleaner's In Focus section. I admire her as a financial analyst, but I was very disappointed with the above-captioned article.

THE EDITOR, Sir:THE JAMAICAN Diaspora Advisory Board never ceases to amaze us with its idiotic views. If this group wants to be admired by Jamaicans around the world, I would suggest it leaves government business...

THE EDITOR, Sir: KUDOS TO the Sunday Gleaner (January 31) columnists Martin Henry and Ian Boyne for highlighting a few more inconvenient Jamaican truths which many would prefer to remain unsunned. Henry correctly notes the failure of attempts...

The Editor, Sir: The Sunday Gleaner of January 24, carried an article attributed to Professor Carolyn Cooper under the unfortunate and fallacious title, 'NWC killing us softly'.

The Editor, Sir: The prime minister made a fundamental point during the recent debate in Parliament over the Jamaica Debt Exchange (JDX) bond offer. He said that the Jamaican economy has made respectable...

The Editor, Sir:All of us, even the most hard-hearted, have been moved by the plight and the pictures documenting the calamity that has fallen on our brothers and sisters so close to us. It has been understandingly frightening because of the random and severe...

The Editor, Sir: I read with happiness the lead article in the Financial Gleaner of Friday, January 29, where the Bank of Nova Scotia had lent some J$1.8 billion to GraceKennedy at the amazingly low interest rate of 13.5 per cent.

The Editor, Sir: Obviously, the music industry has become the dumping ground for academically unsuccessful youths. It is no wonder the lyrical contents of our music have degenerated into a cesspool.

The Editor, Sir, I too would like to add my voice in querying the Government's choice of selling Jamaica's only remaining national treasure to Caribbean Airlines.

The Editor, Sir:The Jamaica Constabulary Force's (JCF) constant vigilance on the road should put to shame some of its critics.

The Editor, Sir: I am very disappointed with the Church in Jamaica in not publicly distancing itself from, and explaining correctly, the recent brainless comments made by founder and host of the 700 Club - Pat Robertson, on one of his televised programmes.

The Editor, Sir: The recent disclosure that, as one of the pre-conditions for an agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) the Government intends to hike bus fares by a whopping 40 per cent effective April 1 of this year, should be of grave concern to every well-thinking Jamaican.

Published:Saturday | January 30, 2010 | 12:00 AM

The Editor, Sir: In reference to the article, 'Nonsense prophetic mutterings', of January 5, once again Kadene Porter has seen it necessary to attack the prophetic utterances of the Lord. I have often said that the main fact that the world is in this state is an indication that people don't study their Bible.

Published:Saturday | January 30, 2010 | 12:00 AM

The Editor, Sir: The patriotic spirit of Jamaicans is, without question, very strong, especially as it relates to being angry about the sale of our beloved airline. For many of us, it was the highlight of our first trip overseas, and the memory of having the headset blazing reggae music while cruising at 30,000 feet...

In your January 29 Letter of the Day entitled 'Relocate Haiti's capital', Faith Clarke makes a very convincing argument for relocating Haiti's capital, given the reality of the existing fault line and cost of reconstruction, etc.

The Editor, Sir:I am very disheartened and disquieted by the recent aim of the Government to cut the subsidy given to students entering tertiary level institutions.

The Editor, Sir: One of my deepest disappointments with the current Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) administration is its lack of transparency and credibility - issues which were pivotal to its election campaign of 2007.

Published:Friday | January 29, 2010 | 12:00 AM

The Editor, Sir:In commending the philan-thropic spirit of the global community to the devastating effects of the tragic earthquake in Haiti, I realise that two significant milestones...

The editor Sir:It was not the youth, as usual, who opened our doors in the last two weeks, it was the humble wonderful people of Spanish Town who brought in bags of clothing for the people of Haiti...

The Editor, Sir: With reference to the article by Sadan Tayad (could that really be somebody's name?) in the Gleaner of Tuesday, January 19, on Page A7, headlined 'Gov't/NEPA's monkey business', I would like to add a few comments...

The Editor, Sir:Allow me space to add my input to this recent tragedy which unfolded in the poverty-stricken nation of Haiti.

The Editor, Sir: Crime, it seems, will always be a thorn in our nation's side, and a major issue for any political party in power. Part of the problem, I think, which fuels and facilitate it is our authorities seemingly lack ...

The Editor, Sir:We must never play politics with the interest of the poor. I say this against the background of the Government managing to secure agreement with key players in the financial sector in terms of debt management.
