    If you are trying to keep tourists and other potential visitors from the Virgin Islands you,’re doing a great job. Why is all news from the VI’s about death, murder, assault with hideous mug shots? Isn’t there something uplifting, heartwarming and beautiful to show the world?
    It’s a beautiful island but seemingly populated with ugly, vicious and obviously deranged people.
    When I lived there from 1979 to 1989 it was a lovely place to live. What has happened to the islands? Has all the class and cultured gone elsewhere leaving only the criminally insane? What a pity!
