Kamina Johnson Smith represented us well
It's impossible to take politics out of life, but is all this kerfuffle over our sister Kamina Johnson Smith's Commonwealth secretary general campaign necessary? We should be proud of her efforts to put Jamaica on the map further, notwithstanding her close defeat. She represented us well and at only a small price. Time to leave her alone.
Lisa Hanna did the right thing

My gut feeling is that she will reconsider her position when she feels her contribution will be better appreciated.
Raiding a former president's home?
Oh boy, it's never a dull moment in US politics. But things seem to be hotting up when the Florida home of a former president is raided, ostensibly to retrieve sensitive documents.

Jah Cure languishing in The Netherlands
The Dutch have decided to keep Jah Cure in prison for at least another six months. What a waste of a great voice. Did I mention that he is one of my favourite singers? But he needs to learn to stay out of trouble. He needs serious counselling. After serving time for that unfortunate rape, he hasn't got rid of his anger, it seems.
