Raul Mondesi, - probably the Duminican Republic's most corrupt mayor.

Once photographed stealing electricity-he was photographed connecting illegally his lavish home to the electrical post.

How's Armstrong doing these days?

Roy, did you hear they now speak Greek in Jamaica.

I saw an interview of Mondesi, asking why he wouldn't pay his million-plus Peso electricity bill. He didn't mind being cut off the grid - he has a big petrol generator. No prize for guessing where the petrol comes from. All the top positions in the San Cristobal administration are filled by his sycophantic friends and relatives.

Okay, Atabey, I'll take the bait. I didn't know that they now speak Greek in Jamaica - are you sure? Why do they?

Check this out, someone sent it to me. I'm guessing it wasn't my friend Dready :)

"Jamaica Labelled The 'Greece Of The Western Hemisphere'

Published: Tuesday January 8, 2013 |

Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller - File.

CMC - A leading United States newspaper today said that Jamaica’s debt crisis is in a worse financial shape than Greece and suggested that the Portia Simpson Miller administration consider a bailout plan with significant debt relief.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Jamaica has more debt in relation to the size of its economy than any other country and warned against the island becoming what it labelled “The Greece of the Western Hemisphere”.

The article is about "DR hosts MLB Prospect International Showcase "
I don't now what this has to do with Jamaica.
If you want to draw fire from Dready, you will need to try harder.
Who on Earth (or perhaps the moon) is the Armstrong you refer to, in relation to this article? (I don't know or care much about baseball, but I have an interest in San Cristobal)
