All is not lost

Dear Editor,

On Thursday, 13th March, two things happened that gave me great hope that all is not lost, as many people, including myself, are fast believing.

The first was the assistance rendered to me by a young woman whom I had never seen before. She walked all over the Mona Campus of the University of the West Indies in the hot midday sun assisting me to look for my car, as I did not remember where I had parked it after attending a mammoth service in memory of the late Michael Pickersgill, the younger brother of the Minister of Water, Land, Environment, and Climate Change Robert Pickgersgill.

The second was the conviction of entertainer Vybz Kartel and three co-accused for the murder of Clive "Lizard" Williams.

Based on the evidence presented by the prosecution I had no doubt about the verdict rendered. And I would like to say a very big thank you to all of the people involved in securing the verdict of guilty. It goes to show that the justice system is still very much alive and very well in Jamaica.

Do you think an increase in JUTC bus fares is justified at this time?
