TALK back with a bang!

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Just when it seemed the politi­cians and their en­dorsers in dis­guise could rest easy, TALK hav­ing gone into end­less hi­ber­na­tion, there it was again where it started, more en­er­gized than the fa­mous bunny.

On Thurs­day evening Rick Wayne was back on DBS with guest Dr. Claudius Pre­ville, almost as if he had never left the build­ing. He opened by dis­pelling a ru­mor that the host alone had heard, about a cer­tain min­is­ter-lover of a par­tic­u­lar brand of lubri­cant who, fol­low­ing a visit to Rome, had sought to per­suade Saint Lu­cia’s prime min­is­ter to re­name Castries Vatican City. Only he had mis­pro­nounced it VAT-I-Can!

The rest of the 90-minute show left no room for lev­ity as Wayne res­ur­rected for­got­ten cit­i­zens who had paid with their lives for of­fi­cial in­com­pe­tence. He ac­knowl­edged there were some who had a vested in­ter­est in his re­tire­ment from TV, if not from life it­self. Such folk were of the view that ev­ery­one in Saint Lu­cia al­ready knew how lousy was their prime min­is­ter and didn’t want to be fur­ther re­minded.

“Then let’s quit talk­ing about Ebola,” said an un­smil­ing Wayne. “Al­ready we’ve heard all there is to hear about the deadly virus.”

The es­pe­cially bad news, for some, is that Rick Wayne and TALK—to bor­row from The Ter­mi­na­tor—“will be back” next Thurs­day, and many more Thurs­days by the look of things!
