Doctoral student studies archaeology/community in GrenadaBy Jonathan Hanna "You want pot-trie? Look, I got loads!" The half-naked man was yelling out the window of a small, dilapidated board-house, shaking a bowl full of prehistoric ceramic sherds. I looked up. "No, no, I'm just trying to find the boundaries of the site, thanks.” The man mumbled something as his face turned sour. "Eh, so ya pay dat man and not me?" A machete appeared next to his bowl of ceramics. I apologised, but he kept yelling as I walked away.

COMMENTARY

Financial Sense… Fathers Matter!!!I recently read a book titled “Breeders Not Fathers.” The title of the book disturbed me initially, but I got the point the writer is trying to convey. In the book, the writer sought to distinguish what good fathers do as opposed to what “Breeders” do regarding the rearing of their children. I do have a difficulty with the term “Breeders,” even though some males just sow their seeds for the sake of sowing, with no intention of taking the responsibility that comes along with it.

COMMENTARY

Boycotted for a KnighthoodGeoffrey Boycott is a BBC cricket commentator. He was an England cricketer for 24 years. Over that period, he scored 8,114 runs in 108 Test matches for England and was the first England cricketer to pass 8,000 Test runs. For this accomplishment, he received the award of Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) from Her Majesty The Queen, through the UK National Honours Committee. But, he clearly felt that the award was not of a sufficiently high rank and he merited more.
