Big up Jamaica, I'm Jamaican. I was always aware there are drugs all over the world. But you had to tell us about something we would rather not hear. That's not news to me. Jamaica is our island in the sun. positivity is needed here not the omg response u were looking for.

Sure sign that they do little or no proof review before releasing their material to the public

Since NCISesses are on tonight that should be number 1 thing from AOL. Also does anyone know if the pic and stills before or after in Black and White is subliminal stuff. I just got to have a pair of Mark Harmons underwear for some reason and that Black Challenger painted white with the AAR scheme on it.

IF these are the 10 things I should know, which, I already do BTW, then this world and the media news system is worse than the state run Russian or Nazi systems of the 30's!

Since when did the media assume the maternal role of spoon feeding the public child the required amounts of intellectual news inputs? Thanks but no thanks I can eat on my own, I can cut my news meat stories into manageable bites and I am old enough to know which items I want to eat on the menu. The media is merely the server, the delivery of the items I have chosen to savor!

AND BTW what is with the flag?

I suppose that the Jamaican flag is to also remind us that (1)although it is a tiny island, Jamaica is the largest English speaking partner of both Canada and the United States, south of the US; (2) several US Statesmen have Jamaican roots i.e Colin Powell and Jacob DeCordova;(3) the last colonial governor of New York who was highly respected by most of the colony, Sir Henry Moore, was a Jamaican who certain religious associations did not like because he wanted to establish a playhouse in New York. Moore, incidentally, was the only native colonist ever governor of colonial New York.

Do not understand the use of the JAMAICAN flag a in the USA there are worse things happening there. It not good that Jamaica gets all the bad things said about it. Look at the positives and what that will offer. Jamaica land we love.

Love the Jamaican flag. Brings back memories of great vacations there. If it is meant as a negative, don't bother. Drugs are everywhere, including this country?

The propaganda machine is getting more transparent as we learn that "Obamacare" is being 'slipped into' television plot lines...borderline subliminal messaging here isn' this?
