Crazy Quote of the week - Bounty Killer
"They have something out for artistes in St. Thomas...I are the target from a long time ago, Anything that you do in this county to uplift people they are going to be against you. If you are the voice of the voiceless, they are going to target you. But I are a bullet and you can't target a bullet." - http://www.jamaica-star.com/thestar/20060829/ent/ent1.html
Pieces of the Past : The Sport of kings

Sport of KingsOne of the world's oldest sports and one of Jamaica's most popular, horse racing dates back to 4500 BC when nomadic tribesmen from Europe to Asia first began to race domesticated horses. The Romans loved chariot racing as did the Egyptians who also enjoyed mounted horse racing, both of which by 638 BC were included in the Greek Olympics.For more on the Sports of King visit http://www.jamaica-gleaner.com/pages/history/
