publications across Africa, requesting I contribute my thoughts to their
platforms. I oblige for free, and it drives a few people crazy. In
their words, "You write for all these publications? You must be earning a

nothing reeks of poor judgment any worse than my usual reply, "I don't

Personally, I have no problem with us assisting the
children of Dominica. I do not believe that providing help to those in
need will suddenly make us destitute or less able to be helped, and I
live in Grand Bahama where things have been tough for years. Were it not
for foreign aid, from the United States in the North to Jamaica in the
South, our island would have suffered even more pain than it did during
Frances and would still be in darkness after Hurricane Matthew last
year. When we saw those foreign guys on those poles fixing our light, we
didn't block them at the border or tell them get out of our country
because you are not Bahamian. We didn't block our borders in West End to
foreign groups who came in bringing relief supplies. Their countries
have major problems too...
