Just Another Jamaica Mistaka!!!!!

I’m beginning to see the “Tweeter” Phenomenon a little differently. Tweets don’t have to be as mundane as letting people know you had a bowel movement. And everyone, including your’s truly, is doing it: Including Margaritaville. Today I got a Tweet from Jimmy’s people letting me know that Jimmy lastest landing on the island of Jamaica was honored as being the first international flight to land at the newly upgraded Boscobel Aerodrome. The attached article from the  Jamaica Information Service however contained mistakes and missed opportunities to expand the article.

OK…What’s my beef with the article:

  1. First, this happy little island insults our Calypso Poet by putting bullets through the Hemisphere Dancer as Jimmy came to visit the island for lunch one day back in 1996. Then15 years later, the Jamaica Information Service further insults Jimmy by misspelling his last name while trying to honor him.
  2. Missed opportunities? Well, they don’t even mention the previous incident; and then they don’t mention that Chris Blackwell happened to be with Jimmy on both of these infamous flights!

But hey…this is just One Particular Parrot Head’s take on the matter.
