Friends , the political tribalism runs deep but we hope this latest one will be put to rest soon.

Would you believe I never realise that the dollar (25) gone up to J$130 versus its US counterpart? Talking about not paying attention.

The light and power company had some good hurricane tips yesterday, which could prevent deaths (3) in some instances. A crucial one is to avoid the use of cellphones when there is lightning. We love to work our mouths (14) and skin our teeth (13), but I hope people will pay this one some attention.

And remember to stay away from windows during a hurricane! Some of us want to faas over the neighbour's house and forget our own safety. And remember, please, do not turn on your breakers after the storm if your house is flooded (30). Electricity and water nuh mix!

That bus driver is a pro in robbing (5) the toll. What a man! We do everything to beat the system. Hope the fines will jump and serve as deterrent on others who want to avoid paying toll.

Until next time, walk good.
