As usual, scandals and crime dominated the headlines this week. One bright spot was the launch of CariFringe, a 10-day local arts festival with events taking place at different venues all over Nassau.
A story from the United States with Bahamian ties was the top story. Bishop Eddie Long, the spritual mentor of local Bishop Neil Ellis, is involved in a nasty scandal that, if true, shows him to be both a louse and a hypocrite.
Bahamian police shot and killed a man on Bay Street, in front of dozens of locals and tourists. Not good for tourism. The man was allegedly threatening an officer with a box cutter, but witnesses say the shooting was unwarranted.
The nine knuckleheads in New York are still a hot topic.
And more Bahamians behaving badly overseas, this time in Canada.
A breath of fresh air from all the crazy mayhem was the release, by Bodine, of her new intoxicated video. BE sure to check it out!
The Baha Mar development struggles on. I swear, they should abandon the project and just make a movie out of all the nonsense that has taken place. From Christie’s grand announcemernts, to the soured Las Vegas deal, to the mysterious plans, to the Chinese takeover… this is a Michael Douglas film in the making.
One of the most popuular articles of the past month has to do with the massive influx of Chinese workers slated for the Baha Mar project.
Business might be bad for most of us, but it is apparently booming for numbers boss Craig Flowers. Good thing, with all those “contributions” he must have to make to politcians and the police.
Oh, this again.
More Chinese workers.
