The Editor, Sir: Over the past few weeks, the country has gone through mayhem, disarmament, post-mortems, funerals and extradition.

The Editor, Sir: It is unfortunate that the leader of the opposition, who has publicly professed her Christianity and supposedly was sent by God to lead us, does not adhere to the Scriptures.

The Editor, Sir: I have been reading your fine publication concerning the affairs of our nation and Christopher Coke.

The Editor, Sir: During my visit to Jamaica during the week of June 14-21, I felt compelled to write this letter, disgusted as I was with the authorities in Falmouth and the Government in general...

The Editor, Sir: We write in respect to your article in The Gleaner of Monday, June 21, 'It wasn't us! UDC denies hiring company linked to fugitive'.

The Editor, Sir: I wish to add my say! To that of others in giving praise and thanks to Rev Al Miller for his self-sacrificing, pastoral, Christlike deed in taking in Christopher 'Dudus' Coke safely.

The Editor, Sir: Permit me to use this space to share a few thoughts about the Rev Al Miller. As I understand it, the security forces were trying - without success - to apprehend Christopher 'Dudus' Coke to execute a warrant...

The Editor, Sir: I have listened and read Reverend Al Miller stating that what he did "...is right ... and right is always right ..."

The Editor, Sir: The don, the pastor and the politician. A Caribbean melodrama. What do they have in common?

THE EDITOR, Sir: There is no real value in singling out individually or collectively government, Opposition or police personnel as many seem wont to do riding the back of the recent Tivoli incident...

The Editor, Sir: Education Minister Andrew Holiness should be commended for the job done so far.

The Editor, Sir: I never knew I would be writing so soon after my 1-888 NWC letter last week.

The Editor, Sir:In filing charges against the Rev Al Miller, the state is continuing its immoral handling of this matter.

The recent furore by the Jamaica Manufacturers' Association, the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association and the general public about the increase requested by and given to the Jamaica Public Service by the Office of Utility Regulations should bring into sharp focus the need for an alternative and cheaper source of energy.

As we come to the end of June 2010, we are forced to rethink what Jamaica is and represents. Today, the image of our chief fugitive is the one that dominates the BBC and other international media outlets as Jamaicans at home and abroad hang their heads in shame. It will take a very long time for us to regain our self-respect and that of others, although the defiant among us try to spin these happenings in a different direction.

The points raised by Phillip Chambers in his Letter of the Day in The Gleaner of Friday June 25 need to be addressed. First of all, when he writes "the system of zoning pupils based on home address is sociologically and psychologically demeaning and must be scrapped immediately," he implies that we have a system of zoning in Jamaica at present.

Even though I don't agree with his alleged wrongdoings, the look on his face tells the world that he is happy to be in the hands of the Americans because he doesn't trust the Jamaican government.

The Editor, Sir: As the Dudus Coke feeding frenzy moves away from Jamaica, I wonder how much longer Jamaica will treat its own with scant regard or brutal indifference.

Published:Saturday | June 26, 2010 | 12:00 AM

The Editor, Sir: Jamaica has long been plagued by a disregard for the rule of law. There is a strong 'ends justifies the means' mentality that has pervaded our society for years. It is true that this may have been entrenched during our anti-slavery and later anti-colonial rebellions...

The Editor, Sir: The whole saga surrounding the US extradition request for Christopher 'Dudus' Coke, and the subsequent invasion and loss of more than 70 lives in Tivoli, including that of the members of the security...

I believe the real victim of the extradition request and the process that ensued was our criminal justice system. It is a travesty that it took the United States, a foreign authority, to build a case against a Jamaican citizen, who had long been alleged by the police and citizens to be responsible for masterminding a transnational criminal enterprise.

Coronation Market has seen a rise in traffic since the conflict in neighbouring Tivoli Gardens, but vendors are still struggling to make ends meet due to a 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. curfew that disrupts conventional business hours in the market.

The Editor, Sir: Those who would readily lash out at the Rev Al Miller, put yourselves in his position.

The Editor, Sir: Recently, I have observed that the electronic media is very much into speculation, hearsay and gossip, just like the ordinary citizens out there.
