 The Steelbands (Pan) of Trinidad and Tobago
The conventional steelbands of Trinidad and Tobago today can range in size from about 10 to 140 members, although 100 members is more usual today, each playing steel drum instruments or steel “pans”, as they are called locally.
No reference to the steelbands of Trinidad and Tobago could hold any weight, without some reference to the extraordinarily dedicated and talented men and women, who have in the past, or endeavour today, to make it all happen.
What is not directly apparent to the casual observer, or nonchalant visitor, is that in Trinidad and Tobago and perhaps just about now, in some other places, is that the steel drum instrument has matured into, and is now fully accepted as, an ordinary musical instrument.

Our anger is all the greater because despite all the presidents for life, despite all the evidence of genocide, we didn't hear anyone at Live 8 raise a cry for democracy in Africa.
What is at issue is an Africa where dictators kill, steal and usurp power yet are treated like heroes at meetings of the African Union.
What is at issue is rulers like François Bozizé, the coup leader running the Central Africa Republic, and Faure Gnassingbé, who just succeeded his father as president of Togo, free to trample universal suffrage and muzzle their people with no danger that they'll lose their seats at the United Nations.

The Prime Minister’s veto list is in fact quite formidable, and while hesitating to bore readers, I must catalogue them to illustrate.
The Prime Minister’s veto is only against the senior and the deputy posts, but common sense tells us that not only will the senior officers be subservient to the elected Prime Minister, but all lower rank officers must toe the line to earn his/her promotion.
The results may lead to a long process of bargaining to elect a president, two vice presidents, etc and to form a government.
