Portside no no no... Broadside, is what these top deckhands in the Gomantak Times either must have or ought to receive for being unable to keep their editorial shipshape.
This particular editorial titled PORT SIDE was first published in the GT first on January 9 and was repeated a few days later on January 12.
Gomantak Times taking a fancy for the brine and surf again... Umaji Chowgule* would have been pleased wouldn't he?

* Umaji was one of the youngest of the Chowgule's who owned Gomantak group of newspapers in the recent past. Umaji was in charge of the day to day operations of both -- Marathi and English -- editions at the time it was sold off to the Pawars. It is believed (Gomantak employees certainly did believe) that he never gave up his passion for the seas (he loved yatching) and even when both the newspaper were sinking, especially the money spinner Gomantak under Tarun Bharat's onslaught.
Strange... check this link out looks like he also tried his hand at blogging sometime back. Check this link out...

Re: The editorial, I must say that moving the fishing jetty at Khareband (in Margao) to Vadem (in Vasco) is going to be difficult indeed, since Khareband has no jetty (it isn't even on the sea). Surprising that Derek, a Saxttikar, doesn't know the difference between Kharband and Kharvewaddo!

You guys really are PRICKS. You don't put in comments that poke your rotund underbellies, do you? What you deserve is to be stuck on that fishing jetty at Khareband (in the GT edit) which I commented about, but you kept it out.

One of you has to be Derek and/or Ashley...
