    We could make anything into a joke – Murders, Violence, Indecent Assaults, Doltish Ministers, Money Hungry Pastors, etc, etc.
    Guess that’s what happens when our leaders are jokers

  10. Omg, I’ve read all. Good job.

  11. I would like this column to promise me one thing in the New Year…..PLEASE USE A MORE ACCEPTABLE, LESS SURPRISED, GENTLEMANLY LOOKING PHOTO OF A FIRED EX MINISTER….OF MR TWO PULL, THE EXISTING PHOTO MAKES MY BLOOD CRAWL.

  12. Thanks Kendall Tull. Very kind of you. And I will keep working hard. 😉

  13. Great year Lasana Liburd. Excellent thought provoking articles and several key investigative pieces. Journalistic integrity and excellence are alive and well in Trinidad.

  14. Think Santa can make it across the border with Gary jumping him? Especially with that “ho ho ho” talk… He might think the big fellah is a rival arrival.

  15. Hey Melville. I’m inside ‘ere trading.

  18. Anil has become the poster face for satire?-)

  19. Yeah. I think the timing of the stories might have worked against some that I liked which didn’t get in… But the readers spoke! 🙂
