It is with alarm that I read Wignall's column in the June 24 Sunday Observer, "Why is the Contractor General howling at the moon?"While on the one hand he sprinkles accolades on the CG, congratulates him on his yeoman service and doggedness in search of the truth, on the other hand he castigates him for his less than stellar work.

As a result he has gained the respect and eternal appreciation of all decent Jamaicans. As Mr Wignall so graciously reminded us, such men often meet tragic ends in this country. We wish Mr Christie well.
