And Did You Know?

And while I have you? Did you know that...

  • Sir Alexander Bustamante (Busta) is still Jamaica's only living hero? Meaning the status was ascribed to him during his living years!

    The only of our seven (7) national heroes!

  • He worked as a policeman in Cuba and as a dietician at the New York City hospital before he returned to Jamaica and got into politics?

    That was  in 1919 at the hospital for joint disease in New York City.

  • He came to the attention of the Jamaican public through the letters he wrote to the Jamaica Gleaner?

  • Tomato juice and cod liver oil had to be delivered to him daily while in prison? He was that particular about his health.

  • One of his popular quotes was, "Ignorance is accepted where wisdom is not expected".

I've dedicated an entire page on him though, be sure to read it at this link.

Now you know :-)
