Well - today there is more interesting stuff in the news- politically. (According to the Trinidad Express ) The MP for my area - Carlos John, decided to quit politics after he was visited by the police with a search warrant in a corruption investigation. (It was about a $500,000 cheque). His family pressured him to quit. Apparently now he's being pressured by "constituents" to stay in politics. I guess corruption isn't important to people in Trinidad.

Corruption destrys a country. It adds cost to everything, it removes the value of quality.Why don't we think it's important? How can a politician (not Mr. John) tell the country that - yes he has a very large foreign bank account, but it isn't our business where he got the money from? Can anyone say twilight zone here?
