Truth is stranger than fiction

Dear Editor,

As I trawled through the television channels, I came upon an interview with Michael Young and the Minister Clement Rohee; the latter was talking about the Linden incident.

Two things amazed me: first the Minister said at one point he could not get in touch with the Commissioner of Police – in the days before cell phones it was inconceivable that a minister could not contact the head of an important department under his control.  Believe it or not – of course they say truth is stranger than fiction.  Then in the joke of the year he said the security situation was good.
Then there was my disappointment in Michael Young, a young journalist who earlier displayed some sense of balance and professionalism, but all of this has vanished.

Yours faithfully,
Hamilton Green, JP
