I have been lazy lately and didn’t post this last night even though I promised the others that I would put something up. Didn’t even get to church on Sunday let alone to the big ceremony. Too tired. My other BFP friends caused enough trouble yesterday, so today I’ll have a look around near and far to see what might be seen…
Is There Anybody Out There?
Our friend BIM at Is There Anybody Out There? blog had a rough day at the PTA fundraiser. Drop over and cheer her up!
Nothing Like The Smell Of Urine Downtown! It Smells Like… Victory! (But Not For Decent Citizens)
Got a little carried away with one of the lines from Apocalypse Now as the war to see who owns Bridgetown continues. So far the tourists and business people are being defeated by smelly drug addicts, criminals, lazy bums and the mentally ill that society has abandoned – all politely called “street characters” by The Nation News.
See the story in The Nation News: Keep Out Vagrants!
Sir Roy Says “Make Sure The People You Do Business With Have Dark Enough Skin”
Yup – that’s pretty well what Sir Roy Trotman, the general secretary of the Barbados Workers’ Union, said in a church service Sunday. (link here)
Sir Roy, you are so 1960’s. You wouldn’t like my son at all – his skin is much too light for your racial standards. I like him just fine, though.
