It's unwise to be both na´ve and arrogant

I wish to respond to a letter [ please note: link provided by LOSP web site ] by CRB Edwards (or is it DG?) in the Wednesday, January 7, 2004 edition of the Kaieteur News, referring to the Minister of Home Affairs.

This letter writer seeks, in his/her own pompous, arrogant and verbose manner, to suggest the resignation of the Minister, because of mere 'information' existing in the public and political domains. DG, oops! Sorry. CRB Edwards needs to recognize that public officials cannot irrationally resign based simply on arrogant and grossly unfounded suggestions by those who seemingly have nothing to do but sit and play with words.

Might I add that information may not necessarily be factual and facts may not necessarily be true? Just some food for thought. The Minister under question has publicly stated on numerous occasions, that he is no angel. Though not suggestive of lending credence to 'information' referred to by Edwards/DG, does this too merit his resignation?

We should not allow our state of na´vety to cloud our judgment. We must understand too that anyone holding the portfolio of Minister of Home Affairs at this juncture in our history will always be under severe scrutiny and will always come in for severe criticisms, unwarranted in the majority of cases. Keep up the good work Minister Gajraj. Most sane persons are still rooting for you.
