As you would imagined there was a sudden arousal of my curiosity; so I started an investigation/research; as I read the letter on the site I made a written record of the amount of hits each letter received. Then I began to look at what I considered the big topics, the names of important people and good writers that are published in this section of this online journal; I also made a record of the number of hits these topics and writers received.
After I was satisfied I then turn the spotlight on my writings. I must admit that I was disappointed when I saw the total number of hits my earlier writings received, but as I make my way to my later writings I discovered that the amount of hits my writing received began to grow. This show that I have began to attract an online following. I discovered that my Caribbean Net News followers began to grow in the same way my “Crushing Fools” blog followers grew.
Now if my writings are responsible for attracting readers to a journal whether online of print, why would these Journals suddenly refused to publish them; bearing in mind that evidence show that the readers follows my writing. Common sense is not common. With the rate of law suits that is being banged about the place and the amount of threats that are issued to the citizenry of St. Vincent and the Diaspora about being sued if one speaks the truth. With this in mind I have conclude that someone threaten to sue the Caribbean Net News, and the News Paper in St. Vincent if they continue to publish my letter/articles; hence their reluctance to publish my articles/letters. To the Caribbean Net News and the other papers please do not print a set the record straight article, (in the same manner the Bermuda Police Service had a set the record straight press release) no one will believe you, for the record is already straight. We know what you will be told or expected to say to hide what is already known.
There is one thing I know the price of justice is very high. Many people have given their lives for justice, honesty and fair play. Giving their life was a sacrifice they were willing to make. Many have lose acquired wealth for just causes but they keep the riches no one could takeaway from them; the riches of a strong character, their integrity, ethics, and high moral standards. It is true that these rich virtues cannot full an empty stomach, cloth a bear body or provide shelter from the elements but the give you something that the fat bang belly cats doesn’t have, which is: a peace of mind.
To Douglas De Freitas, Edwardo Lynch and Nice Radio please be reminded that God is still in control of this world. some people says that he has a strange sense of humor, but one thing he have promise as was declared by the King David when he said: “I was young but now I am old yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken nor his seeds begging bread.”
