Mike Persaud not Mahadeo Persaud

Dear Editor, I note that a letter published in SN on September 1 captioned ‘We should return to the earlier constitution,’ by Vishnu Bisram was intended as a response to a letter I had written earlier (‘Consociationalism cannot work,’ SN, August 25).

We should rewrite the constitution

Dear Editor, The Chinese philosopher and poet Lao Tzu famously said, “A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: We did it ourselves.” I do not pretend to be a leader, but having considered our past and current political conditions in Guyana, it is incumbent that new leaders rise up with practical and innovative ways to heal the wounds of today and yesterday.

Lionel Peters lived his life well

Dear Editor, Lionel Peters, carried himself so humbly that it was very easy to be unaware of all his accomplishments. As a former PYO member, I was very guilty of this as well, and it was only with all the information that I got after he died, I realized that Guyana may have greatly under-valued the treasure we had.

Another ride?

Dear Editor, My intuition is screaming: Something is up and in the making. And it is not good for Guyanese. Early last week, the ruling PPP publicly disclosed its interest in being a part of a ‘National Alliance.’ This is a first sounding, and was believed to be the opening gambit.
