EDITOR, The Tribune.
REMEMBER when you were in high school or college and you took the easy class, with the easy teacher, for the easy A, which made you look really smart but contributed nothing substantive to your wisdom or character? And then you hit the real world and realised you didn't know a Christ thing, and that class - and that teacher - was a complete waste of time?
And then there was the class you took that was hard as hell, the teacher mean as ever, you barely got a C, and it made you look less than stellar, but you knew the knowledge and/or experience would count for something great and purposeful one day? And you hit the real world and you thanked God Almighty that you took that hard class?
Well, that's the consecutive difference between the Perry Christie and Hubert Ingraham leadership experiences.
