1. The frozen smile that you see on her face was put there by her surgeon. So when next you see her on the social scene, please cut her some slack even when she seems to be laughing at serious matters.

2. Bankruptcy is not a popular topic in Jamaica. Maybe the time has come for a national discussion. For example, should you have financially bankrupt persons in politics? In Government? In the security forces?

3. The shabby treatment of old people occurs in uptown families, too. We have seen examples where financially well-off elderly persons are not properly fed or cared for almost like relatives can't be bothered and they don't want to spend their inheritance. Lots of this treatment in evidence these days.
