Friday, March 2, 2012 16:16

By Mike Rudon Jr. Just because the Editor is a friend of mine I start this week’s column with a disclaimer to save him the trouble. Please forgive him, readers who will be incensed, because he truly knew not what I wrote. Okay, there’s a prince coming to town. Think his name ...

Stupid people need love too!

Only once before have I felt the urge to respond to cousin Godfrey’s self-masturbatory outpourings disguised as literary genius. See, while I cannot hope to match his stunning, startling intellect, I’m possessed of a heaping helping of common sense and that tells me that his literature is founded on a ...

Stupid is as stupid does…!

Damned if I know what that wise old philosopher Forrest Gump meant when he coined the phrase – stupid is as stupid does. Of course I wouldn’t dare to presume to understand the brilliance of that great mind, but seems to me he was trying to say that if you’re ...

You remind me of a girl that I once knew…

Dean Oliver reminds me of a girl I met a couple weeks ago at one of my favourite spots in Orange Walk. Actually I was in one of those disreputable sort of places, but I’m a disreputable sort of fellow so I was happy as a pig in mud. Dean Barrow ...

Something’s gotta give…

By: Mike Rudon Jr. I’ve been thinking about taking the pen off the paper, closing the old reliable laptop, shutting up shop, bidding this column a fond adieu and taking a political hiatus, so to speak. I won’t get into the reasons at this point, but let’s just say it’s something ...

This is my beloved son…

By: Mike Rudon Jr. The social fabric in Belize has been ripped all to hell and back, and that’s not a political accusation or condemnation. It’s just the way it is. Things are way different now than they used to be, in our homes and on our streets and in ...

A Rhapsody of Celebration…

By: Mike Rudon Jr. Being that this is the first issue of the Belize Times for 2011, I take this opportunity to wish all Belizeans the very best that this new year can bring. I’ll content myself with sending wishes ...

Happy happy joy joy…!

Thursday, December 23, 2010 9:08

By: Mike Rudon Jr. I have been strongly advised that in this last column I should make every effort to be nice. I’ve been told that right about now I should be overwhelmed by warm feelings, overcome by joy and filled with inner peace. Supposedly all these ‘happy happy joy ...

The concept of fear…!

Monday, December 20, 2010 11:36

By: Mike Rudon Jr. I know this is the season to be jolly but I’m just not feeling it. Right about now I couldn’t care less about jingling any bells or roasting chestnuts over an open fire. That’s somebody else’s reality and certainly not ours. Generally towards the end of ...

Bam Si Deh…
