Between the Lines


In other democracies, it is against the law for public officials to use their office and position to endorse a product or a service. One Cabinet Minister did exactly that this week!


At the government ground-breaking ceremony the other day, even a senior reverend had to step in to take on the emcee duties as people were running late!


Among those who came very late for the ceremony was a senior Cabinet Minister, who’s struggled with his punctuality in recent times since getting into government.


The Am. Samoa governor, upon his arrival for the Samoa talks, wanted a haircut. No barber shop in sight, except for a local cop, who was quickly tasked with the job.


He assured the cop that if he did a good job he would recommend him to Samoa’s PM and Police Minister for a promotion. Heard the governor was elated with the cut!


Heard government executives' vehicles took up all the space on this morning’s ferry to Savai’i. They are heading to the big island for the Atoa o Samoa talks. Couldn’t they just carpool?
