Dear Editor,

May I express my New Year Wishes for 2002 as follows:

I wish that

our drinking water would no longer contain additives;

traffic policemen would not be infatuated with mini-buses;

C N Sharma be nominated for a national award for his dedication and service to the poor and needy;

the President and the Opposition Leader take a joint trip to Trinidad to be better versed in the dialogue process;

the Mayor and City Councillors visit the archives to get a first-hand view of what the Garden City really looked like;

the Minister of Education prepare his leave roster early in 2002;

all TV staff take part in the spelling Bee competition;

wanted criminals be reminded that they are preferred dead than alive;

BWIA stop measuring the suitcases - it affecting the lil prags;

the USA be told that some Guyanese Muslims do have Arabic names and that there are no al Quaeda cells in this hemisphere (we hustling to mek ends meet, much less terrorism).

A Happy and prosperous New Year to the staff of Stabroek News and also to your subscribers. My apologies if I have offended anyone, the intention was to introduce some humour.

Yours faithfully,
