Now Britian’s got talent and to one of those talents today Bahamas Press gives PRAISE! To the man who stirred passions in ways unseen in The Bahamas, we offer a high salute!
John Marquis has been the managing editor of the Tribune and yes we at Bahamas Press have some objective commentary for him.
Yes we must agree Marquis has stirred the passions in all of us. We must say to you that our passion cannot and will not be extinguished, nor will the barrels of our fueled ink pins ever run dry. It is filled with fearless writing, an unshaken force that will live on in the annals of Bahamian history
Yes John, you unlike many have inspired us! Many times tickled us and too often caused to move in a rush of passion to make us race across these ivory looking keys to create melody in the art of story telling.
You John, you almost single handedly forced us to never accept the facts placed on the sheets newspapers. But to do our own checks and recheck with resources provided. And as you instructed through your careful crafted pen, we’ve taken your advice, which said, “When you have it and see the facts, go to the death to defend it!”
And so SIR John Marquis, do accept your knighthood from this global blog of your making. We believe it is a first of its kind, and yes you deserve it! You’ve earned it! We bid you farewell as you leave our tiny spot on the globe. We hope from time to time you continue to peep on here and give us your thumbs up, for we cannot deny we’re all made better because of your work here in The Bahamas.
