The good, the bad, and the ugly (January 19, 2014)

Good

PM Portia Simpson-Miller says that she’s going to open up again and engage the population through community/parish meetings.

Bad

More murders and road accidents in Jamaica in the first two weeks of the year than the same time last year. But, both sets of incidents reflect bizarre trends that seem to have become constants: three murders a day; one road death a day.

Ugly

If Everald Warmington had his way,

You did not vote? You have no say.

But, good for us, our system says:

No vote means say in many ways.
