Dear Editor, Abu Bakr continues to make logically tenuous and intellectually treacherous assertions on the Walter Rodney affair.
Dear Editor, I thank Abu Bakr for our debate and his latest reply captioned ‘In general, the PNC and government were more restrained in their responses,’( SN, July 9).
Dear Editor, In the July 4 edition of the Stabroek News, there was a letter by Mr Daniel Pier captioned: ‘Decline in NGSA maths results this year could be related to factors affecting the Interactive Radio Instruction Programme.’ In consequence of my involvement in the development of this programme to the extent that the Grade 3 Teachers’ Manuals (Terms 1-3) acknowledge me as the writer, I wish to state that Mr Pier’s concern needs to be addressed urgently, especially in the area of training of teachers to implement both the audio and post-audio components of the programme.
Dear Editor, I refer to the comments by former Minister of Foreign Trade Henry Jeffrey (SN, July 9).
Dear Editor, The recent controversy over United States Ambassador Brent Hardt’s tenure in Guyana seems to have focused on his persistent calls for local government elections, and the government’s “feral” reaction towards his so called meddling.
Dear Editor, Guyana, as everyone agrees, suffered and is continuing to suffer from a massive brain drain; even labourers are in short supply.
Dear Editor, I must be numbered amongst the citizenry who clamour vociferously for local government elections.
Dear Editor, Could the relevant authorities kindly inform the residents of Sophia D Section in the third street from the police station if this area was designated as a residential one or otherwise.

Dear Editor, Present-day pensioners have been contributing to the National Insurance Scheme since its birth in 1969, and these contributions are made on a percentage fixed by NIS.
Dear Editor, Any person with an iota of common sense will agree that if you ask, request or beg someone a favour or for something they have in their possession that may be rightfully yours and he/she finds excuses on more than one occasion not to grant it, then maybe that person has no intention of yielding positively to that request.
Dear Editor, At the reception held at the US Ambassador’s residence to reflect on the 238th Independence anniversary of the United States of America, the Guyana government’s message read by Minister of Education and acting Minister of Foreign Affairs Manickchand, whom this country’s youths depend on for educational guidance, was misguided by her own PPP comrades.
Dear Editor, Our society has suddenly become a place where curse words or ‘cuss words’ have become the order of the day.
Dear Editor, I witnessed one of the most horrific incidents while standing on the eastern side of the La Grange Public Road yesterday evening at about 6.10 pm.
Dear Editor, Over the last week I deliberately restrained myself from commenting on or seeking additional information on the Ms Vanessa Kissoon and General Secretary Oscar Clarke debacle, since I took comfort from the reassuring comments of my friend Mr Christopher Jones’s missive to me in the Stabroek News of February 15, 2014 captioned ‘The PNCR has several forums where arms of the party can vent dissatisfaction.’ Additionally, when I learnt of the incident a few hours after it occurred, my first reaction was that maybe both parties are suffering from office fatigue and as a result, tempers flared.
Dear Editor, The alcohol industry has great power in the way it uses sport to market a product that is destructive to many persons.
Dear Editor, The recent outburst by the acting Minister of Foreign Affairs Priya Manickchand directed at the outgoing US ambassador at the 238th independence anniversary celebration of the United States is vulgarity of the highest order and totally unacceptable.
Dear Editor, Freddie Kissoon says that, in his estimation, in a small closely watched country such as ours, it would have been impossible for the plot and execution that ended Dr Rodney’s life to have taken place without the knowledge of the paramount leader/president of the time, Forbes Burnham.
Dear Editor, I have publicly expressed the opinion that Priya Manickchand’s delivery was not written for her.
Dear Editor, Government is there for a purpose. Therefore, when a government no longer serves its purpose, it is time for the citizens to make changes that will benefit them.
Dear Editor, As the disgust fades-like everything else-over the recent Manickchand Manoeuvre at the Independence Day reception, it is timely to examine what prompted the premeditated histrionics.
Dear Editor, I am a resident of Area Q, Turkeyen; a community that is contiguous to the Caricom Secretariat and located to the west of the University of Guyana access road, south of the Railway Embankment Road.
Dear Editor, Elizabeth Taylor said, “It is strange that the years teach us patience; that the shorter our time, the greater our capacity for waiting.” And the Bible said, “those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength.” In this country, we spend half of our life waiting.
Dear Editor, I would like to place on record as I have done several times in print, my position on the death of Walter Rodney.
Dear Editor, In his latest piece, `The defence of Guyana’s sovereignty’, (SN, July 6), former House Speaker, Mr.
