Dear Editor, I refer to the SN news item, ‘Shadick unsuited to Pro-Chancellor post – Ifill’ of Jan 26. Dr Ifill is quoted as telling your newspaper in relation to the position of Pro-Chancellor filled by PPP parliamentarian, Bibi Shadick that Ms Shadick’s credentials were read out and though the qualifications sounded impressive they were certainly not fitting for an academic institution.

Dear Editor, Hovering over the debate about the possible candidates for the putative APNU-AFC coalition is the spectral figure of a subject in a P Harris Stabroek News cartoon of some six years ago.

Dear Editor, I am starting to get fed up with Dynamic Airways. My flight, scheduled to leave for New York this past Tuesday was pushed back to Wednesday due to the blizzard that hit the north-eastern United States.
