PRIZES ALL ROUND: Dionne Warwick's picked up an American Citizen Honour Award for her work raising funds for Aids research - for some reason at the American embassy in Singapore, while Isaac Hayes has been given the trumpet. No, we'd not heard of them either but apparently they've been going twelve years and are presented by Turner Broadcasting Systems to mark achievements by black people in a variety of fields. But not sports. We can understand giving trumpets to musicians, but the significance of providing "casino owner Don Barden" or "District court judge Horace T Ward" with a trumpet is sort of lost on us.
