The Editor, Sir:This is in response to Tuesdays' article entitled 'The hand of God - Haitians call quake the Lord's message'.I find the Haitians' religious concept of God to be very strange and conflicting.

The Editor, Sir: Jamaica enjoys significant media freedom but certain developments indicate that our public is not nearly as informed or proactive as it should be.

Published:Thursday | January 21, 2010 | 12:00 AM

The Editor Sir:Despite the well-known stories of unconscionable behaviour by some members of the police force, and the resulting negative perception on the part of the public as a result, I have never been able to accept that the Jamaican police...

The Editor, Sir:On his return from visiting Haiti, Dr Jephthah Ford alerted us of the possibility of an influx of Haitians into Jamaica as a consequence of the earthquake which had struck that country last week Tuesday....

The Editor, Sir:In the 1970s, Richard Nixon was caught doing wrong and was forced to resign as president of the United States. He was forced into political and social exile for decades until shortly before his death.

The Editor, Sir: It is with mixed emotions that I try to understand the FINSAC Commission of Inquiry. I voted for this government, hoping that it would turn this corrupt, lawless country around.

The Editor, Sir: Through this medium, I am begging the member of parliament, Delroy Chuck, to get the road at Hope Mews off Hope Road repaired. This road is only a few chains long with one small townhouse complex ...

The Editor, Sir: The prime minister has stated categorically that the public sector has to be cut on account of the deepening economic crisis that Jamaica is now facing and one cannot help but agree with him in this regard. I am therefore asking him to look in...

Published:Wednesday | January 20, 2010 | 12:00 AM

The Editor, Sir: I am flabbergasted, to say the least, that some Jamaicans are against taking in Haitian refugees. How can this be? At this time, when things cannot get any worse for the Haitians...

Published:Wednesday | January 20, 2010 | 12:00 AM

The Editor, Sir: Like many Jamaicans, I have sent money and my deepest sympathy to the people of Haiti and will continue where I can. However, I do think that the open invitation to Haitians who want to come to the island ...

THE EDITOR, Sir:I AM never one to shy away from a principled stance but The Gleaner's almost obsessive focus on the extradition request of the United States for Christopher 'Dudus' Coke is suspicious.

Published:Tuesday | January 19, 2010 | 12:00 AM

The Editor, Sir: I find it quite laughable that France is offering Haiti debt forgiveness to the amount of around US$80 million in light of the recent disaster. In fact, France owes Haiti billions of dollars ...

Published:Tuesday | January 19, 2010 | 12:00 AM

The Editor, Sir: To introduce any draconian measures to fight crime at this stage could prove fatal to our society. Giving our security forces excessive powers is not good because they have not demonstrated the ability ...

Published:Tuesday | January 19, 2010 | 12:00 AM

The Editor, Sir; I read an article on Page 2 of Saturday's Gleaner of January 9 headed 'No monkey business!' and I have two basic thoughts regarding it.First, this rather vague and vaguely threatening 'notice' was put out...

Published:Tuesday | January 19, 2010 | 12:00 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir: AS WE witness the efforts of good people to help with the massive tragedy in Haiti, it is worth noting that we tend to forget our differences as the world of humanity reaches out to help our brothers.

Published:Tuesday | January 19, 2010 | 12:00 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir: THANKS TO the necessary agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), interest rates have been drastically reduced. This will in turn reduce the interest payments on the debt.

Published:Tuesday | January 19, 2010 | 12:00 AM

The Editor, Sir: Along with the rest of Jamaica, I extend my condolences to the people of Haiti. I also sympathise with those who were injured and are hurting. I am also elated that Jamaicans have put aside their differences ...

Published:Tuesday | January 19, 2010 | 12:00 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir: THERE IS nothing more inspiring than seeing the response of people, particularly Jamaicans, to a crisis situation, especially when someone is in desperate need. Whether it is the aftermath of a hurricane, or Jamaicans responding to the Shaggy ...

Published:Tuesday | January 19, 2010 | 12:00 AM

The Editor, Sir: I wish to highlight the recent display of bipartisanship by former US presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton as they joined forces to raise funds to assist Haiti.

Published:Monday | January 18, 2010 | 12:00 AM

The Editor, Sir:By now drivers on the Mandela Highway must have seen, if not encountered, the many workers, men and women, in their numbers, cleaning the sides of roads.This is a really great initiative on the part of whomever is responsible.

Published:Monday | January 18, 2010 | 12:00 AM

The Editor, Sir:For too long developing countries like Jamaica have had the mindset that the developed world will always rush to their aid; and while that may be true in a sense, the lack of an effective system to guide that help will only lead to...

Published:Monday | January 18, 2010 | 12:00 AM

The Editor, Sir: I view with interest the knee-jerk display of support for the Haitians following the earthquake horror. But perhaps, human emotions aside, the earthquake may prove to be one of the best things that has ever happened ...

Published:Monday | January 18, 2010 | 12:00 AM

The Editor, Sir: As I listened to the prime minister's quite pragmatic speech last week, I began to see a new light. I listened to a plan for a stronger step in the right direction ...

Published:Sunday | January 17, 2010 | 12:00 AM

The Editor, Sir:I am asking that you stop emulating some other news organisations by using words used by The Associated Press, reporting that the people of Haiti are "looting" United Nations' warehouses for food.

Published:Sunday | January 17, 2010 | 12:00 AM

The Editor, Sir:As I sat and watched the destitution and desolation in Haiti, I cried. I realised that their suffering after the earthquake is the result of corruption and poor administrative skills on the part of all those who have governed the country.
