Monday again

Weekends rolling by way too fast for my liking these days. I was supposed to blog about the concert today but no time to really get into that since I have to hit work early today. Got a seminar to attend this morning. Just trying to keep the mind active I guess.

Anyway not much to talk about but will mention this article from yesterday's Nation. Alicia Keys in Barbados for the Jazz festival and her bodyguards beating up journalists. Chupse! I hate that celebrities and their entourages can get away with so much crap in the Caribbean. And why do Americans feel that them can unfair everybody an get away with it? Didn't seem to be no reason for him grappling up the journalist. Shame on the police for not doing anything about that.

Too much celebrity hero worship bow down to the big boys thing going on. Guess that's one of the outcomes when you do something silly like put all your eggs in tourism.

Anyway got to run or will be late for class. Hope everyone has a nice day.

Jdid, yu hit de nail on de head when yu referred to tourism. Big-ticket foreigners know they can do no wrong in de Caribbean, and that sucks. Keys' bodyguard should be facin' assault charges right now, but we know he won't.

I guess it's like the artist SADE. If she comes back to Jamaica she will be arrested. What started out as traffic offence has blown into resisting arrest and I guess now jumping the court warrant. But I think most of the time they get away with murder because of the almighty dollar as you said.
Enjoy the seminar.
