Haitian President Martelly threatens to punch nation's
journalists in the face, and hard
|By Yves A.

CAMBRIDGE, MA, June 9 -
In what seems to be a prelude to Haiti's refusal to break with
absolute or despotic control or power, which for more than 200 years of its
exceptionally bad of its kind recorded
as a sovereign nation? has obstructed its citizens' progress, newly
President Michel Joseph Martelly has not only expressed by
gestures but told the small Caribbean nation's news media,
particularly proprietors of radio stations, Tuesday, when many of
them were celebrating The Latin American Press Day, "You
stop talking politics on your shows, it's time that you cease
having sensationalized shows; instead, you advise citizens how
to properly construct their homes, you discuss issues that are
of concern to the well-being of citizens; otherwise, as you
know, I am a simple person, I will be forced to resign the
office of the presidency and then punch each one of you right in
the face, and hard, while a fist fight is in progress," an
expression of an intention to inflict pain, injury, evil, or
punishment that was also reported Tuesday by Haiti's
Radio Kiskeya or
www.radiokiskeya.com (in French).
Unfortunately, not even a word from the president about the
nation's Inspectional Services Department, if any, which in
functioning countries and nations, duly and soly enforces the rules
governing the construction of homes, for example. Sadly, now
radio stations, nearly all privately-owned, must too act in the
capacity of building inspectors, a role they or their employees
are not even
minimally trained for. Oh! My God! Only in Haiti!
