    Friday Jul 31 | The Perspective

    The sad part about the 14-years Liberian civil war is that the actual people who should have died did not die, only the innocent mostly did. In a nation where most, if not all, of the politicians are dangerous species and petit criminals, it is hard to disagree as to why Charles Taylor brutally chased out these criminals the way he did.

  16. At New Central Bank Building Dedication, Samuel Doe's Name Not MentionedRead the original story w/Photo

    Sunday Jul 26 | The Perspective

    MY TURN: Washington, DC, July 25, 2015: May their souls rest in peace: the late President Samuel K. Doe and the late Governor of the National Bank of Liberia Thomas V. Hanson, for it was their vision and they started the project but was not completed as a result of the civil war, and we all know those who started the war. That both Doe and Hanson's names were not mentioned at the dedication of new Central Bank office by either President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Central Bank Governor Mills Jones speaks to one of my themes in my writings: that Liberia is a two-tier society between the tiny five percent privileged Americo-Lib erians or Congua and the majority 95 percent marginalized natives or country people.
