I wish more Bahamians who have been extremely blessed would share more with their less fortunate brothers and sisters. I do applaud the generosity of this kind lady.

I'm certain that Mr. Thompson is sincere in his suggestion to help root out corruption, but don't we already offer the officers a reward for their integrity. It is called a salary.

It is rather unfortunate that Prime Minister Minnis does not seem to realize the importance of the timely appointment of the Chief Justice. I'm really beginning to doubt that he is truly up to the task of being a good leader.

I'm sorry, but the Ministry of Tourism should be made to pay up. They did use her son in their commercials, without the Plaintiff's permission. Also, they could have settled this a long time ago, but sought to drag it out in the hope that Ms. Sherman would not be able to afford the costs of litigation and eventually abandon her legal pursuits.

There is nothing crazy about the honourable congresswoman. Just because she has the guts to stand up to a lying sycophant dictator wannabe, and call him out on many of his inhumane and crazy policy proposals, does not make her crazy but a heroine to her people. She could not be crazy to have been re-elected as many times as she has been, and to have served with distinction under several presidents. God bless Maxine Waters, and the Congressional Black Caucus for the work they do in keeping civil rights alive and well!

This warning from this ship's Captain is totally unnecessary, and out of order, other than to protect the Cruise Ship's parent company from the 1% chance that something may happen to one of their passengers while visiting Nassau.

Unfortunately, our Bahamian drivers do drive without consideration for others. Different road traffic rules and regulations should apply in the tourist areas and the tourists should be given the benefit of the doubt.

The Postal Service in the Bahamas is a downright disgrace.

I have a problem with this; not because I don't believe that people should dress appropriately when conducting serious business in government buildings, but who gets to decide what is appropriate dress and what is not. As a whole we have lowered our moral standards to that espoused by our big neighbour to the north, and children are no longer influenced by their parents, teachers, and community leaders. We take our cues from the television sitcoms, and other shows that are beamed into our home. While I would never be caught in any government building improperly dressed to conduct business, I still don't feel too comfortable with Brent Symonette deciding what is appropriate, or inappropriate dress. I would not want my application, or business transaction, to be impacted by the interpretation of some biased government worker who is having a bad day.

This young man is certainly becoming a little annoying.
