Ryp Van Winkle (Sunday Times)
My Dear Satellite,
I haven’t written to you for some time now but I thought I should do so now because you seem to be in the news again, talking about our armed forces, what they have done and how they should be dealt with. Naturally, everybody is sitting up and taking notice and eyebrows are being raised everywhere.
Satellite, it seems that as long as we had ex-Presidents from the Greens, they were happy to spend retirement away from the public eye. JR hardly stepped out of Ward Place after he quit and Dearly Beloved never left Udunuwara. Sadly, the other Green ex-President didn’t have the luxury of retiring.
