Commentary

As the claims and counterclaims are filling the airwaves we are sitting at the edge of our seats.  We at Vision Newspaper have long warned that the campaign will get nastier before it gets better. We have been proven dead right.  We do not gloat at this distasteful turn of events. Did you really expected better?  My friend long ago told me that: “A rabbit cannot be bigger than its four quarters”.  The verdict is yours. That is our perspective. Feel free to disagree. What is yours?
