No doubt about it: we are indeed a unique people. But let’s not be in a hurry to start crowing. Our admitted uniqueness is hardly good reason to shout out. Not when it is synonymous with backwardness and a stubborn unwillingness to move out of the mud of ignorance and complacency. We talk a lot, yes, but seldom do we back up our words with corrective action.
Lately the old noises have been heard about the STAR’s reluctance to publish our government’s more laudable achievements while churning story after negative story about its ministers. It’s not as if we’ve not written a million times that our prime reason for existence is as a watchdog for the people, not as any government’s public relations agents. We see our job as bringing to our readers such important information as our elected officials would prefer to keep in the dark. We do not expect the official media to headline government corruption. And yes, we acknowledge ours is a dangerous job in an environment where political victimization is commonplace. But someone’s got to do what we do if our country is to move forward and not sink into a cesspool of everything retarding, egregious and downright unconstitutional.
