For God’s Sake Stop It…

Sunday, August 13, 2017 15:13

By: Mike Rudon Jr. I’m writing this on a Wednesday afternoon. It’s been 47 days since Elvin Penner killed Kenrick Myvette on the George Price Highway. San Ignacio Police say they still haven’t gotten back the results of the test taken to determine if he was under the influence when he ...

Something Wrong with Us

Saturday, July 22, 2017 14:14

By: Mike Rudon Jr. Last week I had a story in the newspaper about another scandal with former Deputy Prime Minister Gaspar Vega at the center. See, what Vega would do is facilitate the transfer of land to pre-selected persons who would receive title immediately and then transfer that title to ...

Only a Matter of Time

Sunday, July 16, 2017 18:52

By: Mike Rudon Jr. A good friend of mine, incidentally firmly entrenched in the UDP camp, sent me a clipping of a story – a Trinidadian man arrested and charged for a Facebook post in which he stated that somebody should rape the wife and daughter of the Prime Minister, Dr. ...

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 ...

Stupid people need love too!

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 ...
