    Just the way it is...

    News, Postbag, Published on 27/05/2019

    » The headline on the March 26 Sunday editorial, "Politicians must put public first", caught my eye. "The interruption gave the impression that some politicians are still self-serving, rather than serving both their voters and their country. This is unfortunate."
