Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : December 11th 2014 Contents Mr Dallas Kidman was a truly committed citizen
for his many contributions, ie, letters to the editor
of the three daily newspapers.
Mr Kidman, like other concerned citizens, would
send his letters with his suggestions and solutions
to our nation's problems so that those in authority
and those with status and resources to cause sig-
nificant change and progress would do so.
The pen will always be mightier than the sword,
no matter what form they take, ie the pen evolving
to a keyboard then touchscreen, and the sword
evolving to a gun.
It's about communicating to as many people as
possible and expanding their minds and conscious-
ness so they would be able to truly appreciate
what's really important.
It's tragic and ironic, that as has become the
norm in our nation, those who try to make our land
more peaceful and progressive end up dying at the
hands of criminals as Mr Kidman did.
Please wake up T&T before it's too late!

As the time draws closer and closer to the
general elections in 2015 the PNM is facing
some tough choices when screening candidates.
At every screening thus far, save and except
Diego Martin West and St Joseph, the party
has been presented with at least two compe-
tent and in some cases exceptional candidates
from each constituency.
The average number of candidates submitted
per constituency stands at around five candi-
dates thus far. This is as a result of Dr Rowley
expanding the democratic process within the
party by removing his veto power and allowing
every party group to nominate their candidate
of choice whether endorsed by the constituen-
cy executive or not.
The screening committee has therefore made
some tough choices and I must commend the
maturity with which the candidates not select-
ed have acted. The result of this is that the
party is demonstrating to the population that
they are disciplined and committed to the
process involved in the screening of candidates.
We have witnessed the introduction of new
people to the party as a result of this current
screening exercise. We see fresh faces like Stu-
art Young and Farris Al-Wari etc, submitting
themselves to the polls in order to serve their
country. I believe there is more to come in that
regard. The fresh blood has not been
favourably received by some members of the
party particularly because a couple of people
not selected were of the opinion that they
would have gotten the nod. However, the
party s members has trusted the judgment of
The mantra of the party seems to be that
the general knows where to place his soldiers
Thus far Port-of-Spain South, Couva North,
San Fernando West etc, have been keenly con-
tested. It is also interesting to note that the
party has been receiving above-average sub-
missions from constituencies. There is even the
case of Barataria/San Juan constituency which
is organising to screen again, even after sub-
mitting four candidates.
This projects the party as being attractive
and on the flip side making it clear that the
best candidate will get the nod. We therefore
look on keenly to see Tunapuna, Arima, San
Fernando East etc. One thing is for sure no
individual is above the institution.
This election requires that all parties put for-
ward their best candidates with a focus on
LONG LINES FOR SCREENING AT BALISIER HOUSE
I really have to wonder if the leaders of
these labour unions are either individually
or collectively serious about progress?
I am just a lone ranger who get my ideas
and inspiration and drive from everyday ex-
periences. I don't have the support,
whether moral or monetary, from anyone
no matter how hard I try to show my fel-
low citizens daily how our nation is falling
I know that I am not completely alone in
this because other citizens share their very
valuable ideas and solutions for national
development and progress for free without
The solution is within the problem. As I
have before, a major part of the problem is
the type of programming from the elec-
tronic media, that is corrupting the minds
and values of our citizens and so that is
why there exists the culture of superstition
and irresponsible behaviour that Dr Mor-
gan Job spoke of on a morning radio show
the day after Germany beat Brazil in the
In other words why Germany is the
strongest economy in Europe is not by ac-
cident, but by being disciplined, goal-ori-
ented and united. If our labour movement
is serious about the progress of our nation,
then they must engage our nation with
daily, regularly-scheduled programming to
get our nation to be strong, progressive
and united like Germany! Wake up T&T!
Labour unions not serious about progress
On November 14, I was admitted
to this hospital as an emergency
case, and in the early hours of the
next morning I was operated upon.
From the time of my arrival by
ambulance, I was treated with the
utmost respect and kindness, and
appraised of what was about to
take place. I met the surgical team
and anaesthetist just before going
into theatre, and this was very re-
assuring and comforting.
I was pretty much out of it for
the next 36 hours, but from the
time of my awakening until my dis-
charge ten days later, I have noth-
ing but praise for the nurses and
nursing assistants of Ward 7 surgi-
cal.They allow patients to retain as
much dignity as they can under the
circumstances, and nothing was
too much to ensure their comfort
The nursing staff were always
kind, helpful, polite and caring. The
senior nurse Mr Peters was always
hovering in the background ensur-
ing his ward ran like a well-oiled
Thank you all once again for the
excellent care I received at San Fer-
nando Teaching Hospital.
David A Blunden,
Excellent care at San Fernando Teaching Hospital
Mr Kidman a patriot
