      Eleanor Maxine Harewood I sympathize with you, and hope u continue to pull through your own piece of hell that life has thrown at u, I really do…. But no I can’t let this slide…. It was sneaky and lowdown on the part of the journalist… They know how it goes, the police will release the name of the victim…. But nooooo, they must get the extra scoop…. Vile person…

        @Sharon Taylor; I can see that you are one of the bajans that have a problem with the media, you would rather live in the dark ages where you would know nothing about what`s happening or when it took 3 months for a friend or family member to know that is living outside of Barbados. Progress and technology is very hard for some people to accept.

    The statement which says folks would know by the photo-shot of the residence goes to show how small our community is on our tiny island.

    Could you be the first to get to the bottom of this. Perhaps you can aspire to the standards of the “progressive nations” and give the readers: The start, the middle and the end of the story…. sequentially that makes some sort of sense.

    There is no use have Jounalists that dont do what they are supposed to do: every serious act, only tells the demise which is evident. Readers want to know what actually led up to the person’s demise.

    And can you also print the proper programmes on CBC’s daily TV broadcast and stop taking the Mick!!

    Too many petty issues need to be resolved and most are at the hands of people who are deliberately trying to cause confusion in the masses lives, too many petty issues…..the society is set up by the elites…… Quite a simple deduction after living in a more progressive nation, none of these petty things are issues….

    Its a silent war on the masses by the elites,wake up guys !! Its a THEM and US war !!
