    Good work, Bryan. Yes, it hurts to know what’s going on in Linden.Sometimes I want to go back to my poem: Not Wanting to be a Refugee (1984) published in the Indo Caribbean World ethnic newspaper in Toronto.

    Back in those days
    you boil coconut
    for oil
    and relish sardine
    canooed across
    the Atlantic
    and teach
    hungry kids
    to sell sugar-cake…
    each night
    you become a vigilante.

    to me
    Hi Cyril:
    Love your newsletter…but I was taken aback by your negative editorial. And the fact that you produce such a wonderful, caring newsletter belies your negative tone. There is a range of great, warm people all across the spectrum in Guyana. In our comfortable life in North America we should lend support not undermine these struggling compatriots (and keep the right perspective — look at Syria). Incidentally I love the tone of Rahul Bhattacharya’s “The Company of…” He gives us Guyana warts and all but what a love he has for the land and people. It should be compulsory reading for Guyanese of all stripes. Victor
