OPINION: Orin Boston – a well-traveled road is in the making, with the same terminal in mind

By GHK Lall Whenever I see actions of the state following certain well-traveled routes, I manage expectations.  Precedent and commonsense tell me that the game is up, goose cooked, and regular menu served.  The official covers are labeled procedures and process.

OPINION: His Excellency, President Irfaan Ali wanted evidence of racial discrimination -I present it

by GHK Lall The news came via technology, and it was startling.  Two senior employees of the Guyana Gold Board were terminated.  Given the two officers dismissed, and my own familiarity with both, I wonder what could have been the problem with them that was so grave as to merit dismissal.  More importantly, I will now tender something that Guyana’s ...
