Editor’s Note: When this was first posted and titled we misread the Bajan Reporter’s story. It must have been our fault for surely a big time CBC Journalist like Ian Bourne would never write something that was unclear! 🙂
Our apologies to anyone who was totally offended by our error. That’s the great thing about the blogs – unlike the local newspapers and broadcast media where an error is never dealt with, here at BFP when something needs correcting the readership alerts us and the correction stays online.
