  1. Sick country. Sick Lucia


    • The quickness in which some individuals can act on their rage or paranoia is of concern in St Lucian society. Act in haste and repent at leisure!


  2. Strange no one is talking about this murder, I guess it's ok...because it's a man...


    • It is tragic that a domestic dispute resulted in killing. However, more men than women inflict violence which results in death. Of the murders commented recently: patricide, fratricide and homicide are male related. Whatever the gender, there must be a better way for individuals to handle their differences without resort to killing. This takes EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE, and in the heat of an argument it deserts most individuals. To be meek, to walk away is often seen as weakness and no one wants to be seen as a victim.


  3. The unemployed and under employed are about 30% of the population. So with 120,000 it will be o.k.
