Mary Seacole just got one in England, final recognition of her amazing contribution as a pioneering battlefield nurse during the Crimean War. I think they're great. The ones outside the Jamaica National Stadium are beautiful and inspiring.

Bussa in Barbados is just plain awful though lol!

Re: STATUES all over the place.

I guess the New York Times was thinking of statues too.

Yesterday  , waiting for my   car oil to be  changed   , I picked up the day's Toronto Star newspaper .
Lo and behold !    An article , titled ..

* A History of  slavery is kept at a distant * by Jon Hurdle . ... New York Times
Talking about statues in Barbados a whole page , talks about 'Bussa' , Gun Hill etc.

Who says TS is not 'before its time'
lol.
