Tues­day talk

Jamaica Gleaner - - SOCIAL -

1. Some peo­ple are ask­ing whether there is still a bureau of stan­dards, for it seems that any and ev­ery type and shape of goods can now be im­ported into the is­land. Ex­pired goods are on shelves or passed off as ‘spe­cials’. So who is pro­tect­ing the na­tion? 2. The neg­a­tive vibes about the National Prayer Break­fast ap­pear to be in­creas­ing, for af­ter many years of stag­ing this prayer fest, killings, cor­rup­tion, and crim­i­nal­ity are as high as ever. 3. Should per­sons over 70 be re­quired to take their driv­ing test all over again? For one thing, re­flexes are not as sharp as they were (though few would ad­mit it), and their re­ac­tion time is slower. It’s a ques­tion be­ing mooted in light of re­cent tragedies.
