Mr Ramkarran carries on smartly with views that the Guyanese people ought to reject

Dear Editor, I am responding to two issues in recent editions of the Stabroek News. In your Sunday edition under the caption, `Guyana Times already getting over 19% of state ads,’ the following lines appeared; “…when Stabroek News ads were cut off, the Kaieteur News sided with the Government… the KN hierarchy instructed its staff not to offer solidarity to this newspaper.” I have been associated with Kaieteur News for a long time and when the ads were withdrawn, I denounced them in my columns on several occasions. 22

This man was not employed by our funeral parlour

Dear Editor, I am writing to you on behalf of my parlour (New Haven Resting Home) & staff, to inform you that relevant to your publication on Tuesday 6th October, 2009 captioned `Funeral parlour musician remanded over ice pick holdup’ we do not have anyone employed with us as a musician by the name, of Gary Bovell of Lot 3248 South Ruimveldt, Georgetown, who was allegedly involved in a robbery. 1

Not an RK’s guard

Dear Editor, A number of print and electronic media reported on Tuesday 6th and Wednesday 7th, that RK’s security guard Mark Leitch was charged for alleged trafficking in narcotics. 0

Out of tune

Dear Editor, Each year, four times per year I have to sit in my chambers and be assaulted by the Police Force Band as they play and march to and from the High Court at the opening of the Criminal Session. 13

Where is the progress?

Dear Editor, In his letter captioned ‘Contrary to what the newspapers report Guyana is on the move’ (SN, October 6) Dr Randy Persaud measures progress and development by the amount of fast-food outlets established in Guyana, and he proudly listed them. 52

A return to respectability

Dear Editor, October 5, 2009 marked seventeen years since the return of democracy and free and fair elections in 1992. Integrity was returned to our ballots, which have since been counted at the place of polls. 15

Should the police shoot to kill or to disable?

Dear Editor, I am truly troubled by the caption and contents of a letter which appeared in the SN of September 9, which read ‘There should be a civilian review board for all police killings.’ Mr Robin Williams, the author of the letter argued in effect that police regulations and training did not promote shooting to wound. 16

Guyana is a plantation

Dear Editor, Guyana is a plantation. Yes, it is the twenty-first century and many years removed from the past, but a closer look at the realities of today provides irrefutable parallels to a once harsh and bitter time that no amount of present-day mythmaking can dissipate or overcome. 45

Ralph Ramkarran is the right choice for 2001

Dear Editor, The September issue of the Guyana Review carried two intellectually stimulating articles entitled ‘Bharrat Jagdeo and the future of the PPP’ and ‘Robert Corbin and the future of the PNC.’ However, one thing is abundantly clear from the conclusion and that is the dearth of capable leadership in the current political environment. 15
