Larry Burchall: Sad to see the Sun go, especially the way that it has.
Larry Burchall: In the end the whole affair is fizzling out. One Premier lost, one Attorney General resigned, two or three lawsuits initialled, and $348,000 not accounted for.
Larry Burchall: There is no time for political stunts and farce. On any one of those 5000 plus days the PLP were in power they could have independently ordered a Commission.
Larry Burchall: Sometimes 'official' language conceals. Sometimes it reveals. Friday’s House of Assembly session provided an excellent example of 'official' language achieving both - at the same time, as though it was scripted for the comedy show "Yes, Minister".
Larry Burchall: Bermudians must grow up and admit that Bermuda’s long relationship with tourism has changed.

Larry Burchall: Our politicians are like two packs of dogs at water's edge on a pink Bermuda beach, circling and snarling and growling at one another.
Larry Burchall: Leaders who do not do well begin thinking, regularly, that the man in the mirror is a god. In time, some sooner than others, all these god-seeing leaders fail.
Larry Burchall: Have the Premier and the members of his mini-gang been straightforward with the Bermuda public whom they were elected to lead and represent? No.
Larry Burchall: "Children having children" has long been an automatic response and statement — really a cliché — used by many social commentators. That cliché is wrong. It is based on myths supported by ignorance.
Larry Burchall: There is real growth in Bermuda, but in the wrong place and amongst the wrong people. That growth is in Bermuda's 'Invisible’'Class.

The fact that Dr Heatley - and all the others - were invited by us speaks to the depth of a persisting national cultural trait that says: "Trust a Messiah before you consider a Bermudian."
In April 2004, when I went to sleep, God was in His heaven, Satan was in his hell, "Dubya" was in the White House, and my Bermuda house was full of nice stuff that was all paid for.
Larry Burchall: From the "noises" being made in the stream of media releases and statements, I do not see or hear the BTA recognizing Bermuda's 2014 Tourist Industry reality.
Larry Burchall: Standard and Poor's on Tuesday affirmed their 'AA-/A-1+' sovereign ratings on the Government of Bermuda, and said the outlook remains negative.
Larry Burchall: For all Bermudians, the critical thing to remember is that we should listen to everyone. However, us lot should listen even more critically to people who, because of their credentials, claim higher abilities.
