Times staff and wire reports Barbados Prime Minister David Thompson, 48, died Saturday at his private residence of pancreatic cancer, the government announced. Thompson, who became prime minister in 2008, had been ill since March and traveled to New York several times for treatment. In an address to the nation last month, Thompson said he was reshuffling his Cabinet to pass many of his responsibilities to other ministers. He said he chose to speak by radio instead of going on camera so people would focus on his message, not his appearance.

Regarding Barbados ["Jump In. And Savor." by Janis Cooke Newman, Nov. 1]. She should have tried the cuisine at Eve's Garden in Hastings . . . scrumptious. Loved the article. Vanita Maloney New York City

I came to Barbados for the flying fish sandwiches. Not that this small island at the easternmost edge of the Caribbean doesn't offer other attractions. Like perfect weather. And beaches that come in two flavors -- Caribbean, which has a sea that is turquoise and tranquil, and into which the sun sets spectacularly every evening, and Atlantic, where the coastline is rocky and the sand is the color and consistency of cake flour. Then there are the Barbadians themselves, people who are the very definition of friendly locals.

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados -- The United States men's soccer team advanced to the regional semifinals of qualifying for the 2010 World Cup with a 1-0 victory over Barbados on Sunday. Eddie Lewis scored in the 21st minute off a through ball from Freddy Adu, who started his first World Cup qualifier. Lewis took the pass and put the ball through the legs of goalkeeper Alvin Rouse for his 10th goal in 80 international appearances.

1 After having played three of the top-ranked teams in the world and given up a total of only three goals to England, Spain and Argentina, U.S. Coach Bob Bradley was able to enjoy Sunday's 8-0 rout of Barbados in Carson as the American team set out on the long road to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. "It was good to get the whole thing under way," Bradley said. But the coach dodged the question of whether it really is necessary for the U.S. to play 18 qualifying games over the next 16 months when the end result is a foregone conclusion that they will be in South Africa.
