Legal incest vs society’s sure disgust

There is hardly anything nowadays that anyone can say to the public that will be guaranteed to shock. The relentlessly radical libertines among us have seen to it. Liberty and freedom –– grounded in individual entitlements which some United Nations human rights arm obsesses with –– are now clearly understood to be the power or [...]

Our good health at what price?

The cynical might be moved to observe that the Queen Elizabeth Hospital’s chief executive officer Dr Dexter James is stuck in replay mode on the challenges to the institution’s ability to continue offering full and free health services to the nation’s sick. The unsettling truth is, the Government, which bankrolls the operation of our premier [...]

Wolves and sheep and white collars

Well, it came straight from the horse’s mouth –– so to speak. And, if one can bear with the mixed metaphors, we have now been burdened, like pack mules, with the debilitating thoughts and imageries of many a wolf strutting among us in sheep’s clothing. We may have produced our very own adaptation of George [...]

From dream to draft and reality

Barbadian athletes would no doubt have welcomed the news yesterday from Minister of Sport Stephen Lashley that a draft policy on the financing of sports should be a reality early next year. We are quite aware of the numerous promises over the years for draft policies in various areas; some of which have been realised; [...]

Why heap on others that dirty work?

It is far more exasperating than amazing the miscellany of garbage we will find on the beaches we boast to the world are among the finest and most golden on this planet. And this sordid state of affairs on an island whose successive Governments and proud populace cock-a-doodle-doo every dawn about their literacy, education and [...]

Lifeguards over troubled seawater . . .

It is no understatement that there is an even more concedable need now for us Barbadians to feel comfortable and confident using our beaches and sea, and for us to believe our safety is truly a concern of the powers that be. Such state is a prerequisite for our national peace of mind –– for [...]

Clean hands keeping our bodies whole

Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.  –– 2 Corinthians 7:1 These words of the Apostle Paul to the Corinthians –– which give support to Methodism’s founder John Wesley much touted mantra that “cleanliness is next to godliness” –– [...]

Grand hall of fame for our super seniors

No sooner were we done lamenting the low-key approach to Senior Citizens Month this year, we were presented with the inaugural recognition project Hall Of Fame For Centenarians. And it was a moment of significance for all of us who hold dearly to our ageing and aged, and ever respect and honour their contribution, and [...]

Making a case for Barbados’ indigenous sport

Road tennis, said to be the creation of Barbadian author George Lamming and the late Lance Bynoe, has been around since the 1930s. It is played in every nook and cranny of the island. Over the years, the game has gathered impetus, thanks to the efforts of its organizing bodies, the tireless work of its [...]
