An exemplary “bow”

Dear Editor,

Re: Proceed with caution and the Pacific Games

I doff my hat to Mr. Akilsi Pohiva of the Government of Tonga. 

There is absolutely no embarrassment in the having the “guts” to do what is right.

My only hope is that the “decision-makers” in our Government have the nous to emulate the integrity of Mr. Pohiva’s exemplary “bow” to common sense and not allow corrosive biases, inflated egos and the guises of self-interest to distort facts, obscure rationalization and their unforeseen consequences.
