Yes, we all remember Jackie Caraibe and others
(including you, Kathy, if you want a look in...)

What do you suggest these fellahs should do
in these circumstances, then?  Do you think 
they all became journalists knowing that this
magic Hour of the Visa would come?  Perhaps 
even deliberately working towards it by 
criticising the regime?

Should we continue with the lumping 
together of all and sundry?  Assimilating
"opportunistic" with "receiving death threats."
Unless you really believe these guys have
made them all up...  Next we'll be getting to
Jews, Masons and... All Haitians Have AIDS...

Keep yer eye on the ball, Kath...
