Marco left this world eight years ago. That it has taken this long to get something meaningful implemented and THAT is STILLin the implementation phase is a national disgrace.

Here Here Momoyama. These paragraphs are pure fire. Clearly argued. Don't expect anymore pushback on these pages because you have presented a knowledge based argument and Bahamians - to our detriment - operate on half truths and emotions. Thanks for the comments- rather refreshing.

Dear Mr. Johnson, Read the article in the competing paper and you will see that the number of discouraged unemployed persons is down because many have left the island to seek employment in Nassau. Keep smiling. Greentea.

You assume too much and this article is trash. I don't know these people- never heard of the Foundation asking for a heap of money from strangers and somehow that is my fault? Why should I have to do research before reading a supposedly competent newspaper's article about an organization asking for a half a million dollars? Isn't it the business of the paper to inform? Especially in a situation where fraud has already been committed? This is one of the reasons why they have only gotten 7000+ in pledges. They won't get close to the 400G they are seeking if they are as defensive as you. If the requested information isn't readily available at ALL media points, people will be suspicious and not prone to give. And frankly the timing is suspect. They "just" remember to do this after seeing the restauranteur being taken care of? Two years after the fact? Where did that 400K number come from? It reeks of opportunism. Without a clear explanation as to how the unpaid workers will be named and the money distributed to them, I wouldn't give them a red cent. And only 7000K raised so far tells me I am not alone. But heh- I hope the foundation members are willing to reach deep into their own pockets. Good luck with the drive.

This is a newspaper still isnt it? - Who the F is behind The Exuma Foundation? Who is its director and who makes up its board? What is the normal work of the Exuma Foundation? What is their non-profit status number that enables them to use the term Foundation? Where is the Foundation registered? How will they distribute any money received? Another fraud going after sympathizers? What a joke. A waste of ink and code.

Thats the problem. I think if they are honest we would be shocked who among the so called upper classes/ politically connected classes had children who received "loans" for college. But you know those names have been pruned- Notice I didnt say "paid off and pruned"- just pruned. The scruggglin' unconnected middle and working classes of this country ketch all the hell and all the burdens of this nation.

If the government, or media are not willing to NAME and SHAME these people- this is just sensational foolishness. Aint nuttin will change because there are no real consequences for wrongdoing.
