“Of the dead, say nothing but good.” So goes the old saying, and it appears more than a few Saint Lucians took this to heart at last week’s passing of Robert Mugabe, former president of Zimbabwe.

Dhanraj Chaz Cepal promised his brother, Joshua, that they would go together to the visiting Suarez Brothers Circus. Additionally, he would use his first salary from the teaching job he expected to start on September 2 to buy Joshua whatever fun things he wanted. But Chaz would never deliver on his promises. In the early hours of Sunday, August 31, he drove his mother’s car into an electricity pole at Union, breaking it and causing a power outage in the area. By all accounts, Chaz died on impact.

Royal Caribbean this year opened CocoCay on the island formerly known as Little Stirrup Cay, in the Bahamas. Operating on land, the cruise line had leased the sleepy locale within the Berry Island chain before announcing in March 2018 that it would be subject to a US$250 million transformation.

Curiously, some people habitually deliver their most profound pronouncements when the balance of their mind is disturbed. A group of such handicapped individuals has lately been suggesting this country’s more pressing problems are to be blamed on the age of its parliamentary representatives.

For the Republic of China (hereafter called Taiwan) 2019 is seeing it face a greater threat to its way of life than it has for many years. The island-nation of 23 million has always faced an existential danger since those who claimed it to be China’s rightful government moved in exile to the island in 1949, the mainland ruling Communist Party of China (CPC) holding the island to be part of the People’s Republic of China (hereafter called China). But for seventy years the nation has hung on and grown into a prosperous, democratic society.
