Never before, as a lover of West Indian Cricket, have I so wished that the ground would open up and swallow me.

Like many others, I have had my share of poor service at government offices so it’s only fair to mention my pleasant experience at two offices. The first was at the San Fernando Office of the Registrar General where I went to get a copy of my birth certificate.

The Sunday Guardian editorial on Dr Rowley’s speech at the recent Energy Conference was, in my view, loaded with cautions and advice about the dangers of tackling major hydrocarbon producers who have contracts that may, in the present circumstances appear unfair.
