Simon and Garfunkel still rule – Sounds of Silence from Barbadian Mainstream Media and Gov’t for closure of Graeme Hall Sanctuary: 1 month, 5 days
Harlan Ellison once had a science fiction tale called “I have no mouth, and I must scream” some 41 years ago – perhaps the title may be equally apt for Barbados’ media fraternity in its deafening silence over the continuing closure of the Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary?

“…we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air. We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing-grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills. We shall never surrender!“
