Your Dominica morning news roundup for Tuesday September 23th 2008:

Opposition leader Hon. Ron Green is lamenting that there is no change in the present economic strain on consumers on the issue of overpriced foodstuffs, since the DLP has taken no initiative to implement a price control system in Dominica. Question to PM Skerrit: Why is it so difficult for a price control to be established when there is such a dire need for it?

In press conference last week, Minister of National Security Mr. Rayburn Blackmoore addressed the public on the issue of ever-increasing violence in Dominica. However, the question arises on multiple occasions, is the problem targeted at the source? According to numerous callers on the hot seat (a popular radio talk show), the preponderance of criminal activity are the common practices of young persons.

PM Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit is currently leading a four member delegation to the 63rd Session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, and while there the PM will address Dominicans in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday, September 27, 2008.

We end this morning brew with Dominica’s Queen Miss Marah Walter who walked with the crown as the new Miss Caribbean World 2008. Winning best swimwear, best talent, best Evening Wear, best Costume and was also awarded Miss Popularity. Yet another reason to be proud of our Carnival Queen Marah Walter and our beauty island Dominica

Hooray for Ms. Walter!

Our daughter lives in Brooklyn and so do several Dominicans we know, and we hope they go to sea and hear the PM.

Blame some of the violence among youth on the horrible examples in rap and videos.

Ditto on the Hooray…

I might be in Brooklyn this weekend, if so I will be glad to hear the PM.

We can either blame a whole host of outside factors or (I don’t see that there is any point at all except to cause division) we can focus on solutions. During the time in the United States of the “Wild, Wild, West” there was violence and no rap music or videos. Violence has been a part of humanity since the beginning of recorded humanity. I would think, in Dominica in particular, that there are many other examples that counter any example found in rap and videos and some youth make the decision on which example they will follow.
