Politics & Mudslinging By: Armand
The Hon. Stephen
Prime Minister of Canada
Dear Mr. Harper :
Just as I was getting a warm and fuzzy
feeling about your party---warts and all ---
I note that your party has stooped to the
despicable practice, typical of the States,
of deriding an individual you see as a
threat to your power base.. Such personal
assaults are unbecoming of a true statesman
which you seemed to be. By introducing
obtuse abstractions to the focal narrative,
you are proceeding with the loose pragmatism
of a trapeze artist without a safety net.
Old Order changeth in favour of the new By Armand Rodrigues
It never ceases to amaze me that we, the
people, elect a raft of incumbents to high
office and, towards the end of their term,
are ready to hurl invectives at them,
chastise them, and turf them out.
How and why do politicians, like Stephen
Harper, endure the constant barrage directed
at them ? Even if they brought a lot of
negative sentiments upon themselves, should
we, lesser mortals, give them a bad name and
hang them ?

Goa’s tiny airforce during WWII By Armand Rodrigues
World War II, Portugal ---and Goa by extension--- remained neutral. However, Goa
remained a perennial thorn in India’s side. A token air force was necessary in
Goa, to keep potential invaders at bay and to keep citizens honest and loyal.
Laughable as it may sound today, the Portuguese deemed it expedient to base a
single-engined Gypsy Moth type of ‘plane, at a dirt landing strip in Marmagoa,
in a show of force. Some bravado !
From time to time, the ‘plane would buzz above the tops of coconut trees and,
sensing a predator, squirrels would scamper off in all directions and crows
would alert everybody with their noisy cawing cacophony. For us, mortals, the
‘plane was something to marvel at. My brother Placido and I, who were in our
early teens, were obsessed with the idea of actually getting to see this amazing
contraption, up front, for the first time in our lives. It took some persuading
to get our mother to agree. She arranged for a young man named Vincente to be
our guardian and to escort us. Needless to say, we were agog with eager
