Caribbean News Now
op-ed columnist Anthony Hall has recently published his fifth retrospective compendium of insight and observations on the major events of our times.
CHANGE We Can Believe In? by Anthony L. Hall
Mr Hall’s latest look back -- CHANGE We Can Believe In?
-- covers his usual wide range of subjects, including sports, celebrities and their glorified misbehavior, the Obama presidency, resetting Cold War relations, the politics and business of religion, and the end game of corruption in an island paradise, in his inimitably enlightening and entertaining style.
Once again, the latest volume is conveniently ordered by topic, making it easy for the reader to refer to particular sections and items of interest.
Of particular interest to our readers will be the regional perspective Mr Hall brings to much of his commentary.
Topics of special Caribbean interest in the latest volume include follow-up commentaries on the situation in the Turks and Caicos Islands that eventually resulted in the appointment of a Commission of Inquiry to look into allegations of government corruption and serious dishonesty; the changing (or not) of the political situation in Cuba; and events following the devastating earthquake in Haiti.
For Mr Hall, like Shakespeare, all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women are players (often to be lampooned), with their exits and their entrances.
|Anthony L. Hall is a descendant of the Turks & Caicos Islands, international lawyer and political consultant - headquartered in Washington DC - who publishes his own weblog, The iPINIONS Journal, at http://ipjn.com offering commentaries on current events from a Caribbean perspective
In politics, we have the “no brainer” exit of Sarah Palin and, in sports, the Tiger Woods “bimbo eruption”.
This year, Mr Hall also comments on the ways in which celebrities become far more famous in death than they ever were in life … for a few days.
As always, Mr Hall tackles all of these topics and many more with his trademark confidence, flair and humour.
Highly recommended reading.
CHANGE We Can Believe In? is now available at all major booksellers, including Amazon.com
