Dear Editor,

This ninety-year-old senior has just returned to my homeland.  At 7:30 pm on Monday, October 21, I searched the TV channels for Jeopardy which exercise I maintain is chiefly responsible for my being able to pen you this letter and is also responsible for my not suffering from Dementia or Alzheimers.  Management of Channel Seven, I know you love this dear land, Guyana, as much or more than this senior.  I appeal to you to institute with regularity the Jeopardy programme to ensure that citizens of this dear land maintain a high level of knowledge and maybe intelligence through the exercise.

This senior will be happy to know that by my daily participation, I am assured that Dementia and Alzheimers will never happen to me.

Editor, on my arrival at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport on Saturday last, my wheel chair was added to a line of wheel chairs.  I was number eight in line.  I had an urgent need to use the rest room – can you imagine the turmoil in my mind?  At the JFK Airport wheel-chair occupants are taken to a serving immigration officer to be served immediately after the one being served on our arrival there.  I will be happy if consideration is given to us who are incapacitated in one way or the other.  Do be kind to us seniors; we once gave yeoman service; help us to maintain our dignity by adopting a more humane system.

Yours faithfully,
Essie Holder
