Is the State of Emergency Stoning the Mango Tree for One Ripe Mango?

Destroying the Green Mangoes Stoning the Tree for One Ripe Mango The State of Emergency: Despite the objections of a few misguided souls that would stretch an analogy out of proportion to fit their warped sense of the world, it is fitting to liken governments to parents and their constituents to children. This is so in as many jurisdictions as... Read More

Warren Johnson – Views from Above – Vol 15: Captain Burrell: No Hero

Captain Burrell is dead. Long live Captain Burrell…. in this land of mega-stupidity, it is said that one should not speak ill of the dead. Taken to its logical conclusion, either we refrain from talking about Hitler, or we say he was a good man. For those who are inclined to misread or to show their inveterate lack of understanding,...

WARREN JOHNSON – “VIEWS FROM ABOVE” VOL #14 HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANOURS

HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANOURS: From as far back as I can remember, or from 1989 as a specific point of reference – Jamaica has never been a country where the rule of law and social order was a priority of government, which would seek to impose this on a largely undisciplined citizenry that has grown use to loose living. Virtually every... Read More

WARREN JOHNSON – “VIEWS FROM ABOVE” VOL #13 Night Noise Comedy Central

Night Noise Comedy Central: Jamaica is a place that will make you laugh, cry, holla, shake your head until it is close to falling off; and take you through a whole range of emotions. Cross, angry and miserable comes into sharp focus for the more discerning and less gullible to direct appropriately at governments supremely skilled in the art of abdicating... Read More

WARREN JOHNSON – “VIEWS FROM ABOVE” Vol 12 -Drawbacks of Noise Abatement Act

Drawbacks of the Noise Abatement Act: The Noise Abatement Act was no doubt instituted as a good thing with good intentions, but like most laws and policies coming from our governments, it was not clearly  and thoroughly thought out and enacted; and so, instead of it being useful to the people, it becomes a further source of annoyance, frustration and...

WARREN JOHNSON – “VIEWS FROM ABOVE” VOL #11 Payola

The movie, American Hot Wax, speaks infamously about the subject that had caught up two of the most famous people in radio during the 50’s, Alan Freed and Dick Clark. It was even a part of the topic in the movie starring Jimmy Cliff, The Harder They Come.  However, what exactly is Payola? The dictionary defines it as the ‘practice... Read More

WARREN JOHNSON – “VIEWS FROM ABOVE” VOL #10 Jamaica Shortchanged

Being consumed with ambition to see my Island In the Sun great, I am deeply troubled at the efforts; wondering with all the traveling that our selected government officials do to most of the best run countries in the world, why is it that they don’t adopt the best practices they see and use them here for the benefit of...
