Complete and Utter Bullshit

Thursday, June 22, 2017 15:26

By: Mike Rudon Jr. Over the weekend a 16-year-old girl was brutally murdered, her throat cut before she was thrown into the river. Her boyfriend’s neck was also cut, and he was thrown in the river but survived. Old man in the media that I am, cold and callous even, I ...

Judgment Day

Saturday, April 22, 2017 20:00

Once upon a time, I respected Dean Oliver Barrow. Don’t hate me. I really did. Now I can’t believe I was so stupid. DOB is a power-hungry, ruthless, selfish, uncaring man who really does not give a damn about the people of Belize. To him, we are worth nothing more ...

On Bubby-Suckers, Party Fanatics & Jackasses

Friday, April 14, 2017 17:28

By: Mike Rudon Jr.   You will notice and appreciate that I used the word jackasses as opposed to others I am prone to using. I have started, in my relatively old age, to go to Church and my God says I should try to be a better person and not curse ...

SOBER REFLECTIONS – Prince Who?

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 ...

Thursday, March 3, 2011 19:13

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…!

Friday, February 25, 2011 15:48

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…

Wednesday, February 16, 2011 23:54

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…

Friday, January 28, 2011 15:11

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…

Friday, January 14, 2011 2:01

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…

Friday, January 7, 2011 9:07

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 ...
