This should do wonders to help feed everyone who can no longer afford to buy their own groceries. And of course Mitchell happily reminds us about the few fish and even fewer loaves of bread that fed so many.

And after planting a fruit tree or two to feed all of us, Mitchell headed off to Rome, Italy to attend a conference where he and his boyfriend could wine and dine at the famous five-star restaurant known as Sabitini's, all at the Bahamian taxpayers' expense. LOL

In the old days, the reporters would go from left to right ,identifying all in the picture, but nowadays they are too lazy and leave it up to the readers to figure things out, for example, the white woman has to be Sarah Dickson,etc. All of that just to plant a seagrape tree which grows wildly all over the country.
