 Editor's Note: I missed the week of February 28 and the Week of March 9 because my sister and I went to Roatan, Honduras to celebrate my 60th birthday at a wellness spa. I don't why I had the urge to go to Honduras rather Mexico of Belize. But I was drawn to the small island off the mainland of Honduras.. . where I met the Garifuna. The story of their origin that was told to us - was that captured Africans rebelled by acting crazy- dressing up in women's clothing, painting their face white. The colonialist were so disturbed by their behavior that they put the men, women and children on a boat and set them up on the island of Roatan. A somewhat different story is on the internet - black Caribbean align themselves with the French against the English. When the English eventually won - they shipped all the black carib to the island of Roatan. Whatever, their origin they are a fascinating African descendent culture: Caribbean fishing and farming traditions with a mixture of South American and African music, dance, and spirituality. The island now has a large population of "Spanish" (we would call Hispanics) and a small, but significant population of White Americans who, as usual, are taking the best beach fronts and excluding the indigenous population: the Garifunas and the Spanish. At any rate, if you want a neat, inexpensive vacation off the beaten path - think Roatan, Honduras. It is only 2.5 hours direct flight from Houston. VRR

Worst Person: Mar 13, 2008 - Geraldine Ferraro and Hillary Clinton
Geraldine Ferraro  for making an ugly and bigoted comment that Barack Obama is "lucky" to be black, and that he would not be where he is today "if he were a white man" or "a woman." Make that ugly, bigoted. Ms. Ferraro's comment are offensive and shrewd.  Her remarks raise the wide-spread white sentiment that less-qualified black people are getting jobs that should go to hard-working and experienced white people. Her words are a barely coded play for the bigot vote. Furthermore, her reference to "woman" read that "white woman" her remark links Obama with the oppression of white  women. Then , Geraldine Ferraro, made herself the victim: "I really think they're attacking me because I'm white," she said. "How's that?

Hillary Clinton for not swiftly, soundly rejecting and denouncing the comments of Ferraro and firing her immediately from her campaign.
