“I say let traditional media die. I think they were mandated to be the public watchdog, but in fact serve corporate and political interests with far more alacrity than they do the interests of the common man.
I think blogs and blogging and other online mediums can and should take the place of traditional media, if only because it saves trees… but also because having been a journalist, and in fact a member of this Caribbean Collective, I do not think that traditional journalism is doing the job anymore and it’s up to those of us who have the will and creativity to write, to speak out.
Where is the Ocean Park story? Where is the story about the boy missing in Farley Hill? Where is the coverage of the Roy Morris Rape case? Where is the coverage of anything other that uber-right arch conservative overly-Xtian BLP propaganda in the Barbadian press? Just isn’t there…”

Our friend Sun Goddess is a big Second Life fan. I don’t know where she finds the time to SL, let alone time to blog, be a mommy and “real” work. But we are thankful that she does take the time to blog because it is always a worthwhile visit.
Oh… the little one?
He’s Dayo and he rates about a 15 out of 10 on the “cute baby” scale. Sungoddess caught him discovering the sunrise. Look at that smile and enthusiasm for a new day.
If you could bottle that, you’d make a fortune.
Keep smiling Dayo and the future is yours!
