But the joys of this time can completely evaporate in the blink of an eye with just one error, lapse or oversight. When it comes to safety, we agree with the position taken...

THE EDITOR: On behalf of all of TT, Vene included, I wish Dr Slinger Francisco a happy 84th birthday. Sparrow was born in Grand Roy, Grenada, in 1935.
