I am listening to Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me on NPR, online, while writing this and it is hilarious. Right now they are talking about getting energy from bouncing breasts! lol
Okay, so now to more serious business: what the heck is going on in Zimbabwe?! Kristof of The New York Times wrote an interesting Op-Ed piece about Mugabe and the hypocrisy of other African nations in holding him accountable for his actions. Zimbabwe, once the richest country in Africa, has succumbed to a being a country where hunger is rampant and Mugabe, butchers and terrorizes anyone who opposes him.
Kristof entitled the article, “If Only He were White,” and I think that this such a true statement. Black African leaders would be calling for the ousting of Mugabe from his post months ago, if he were white. However, Mbeki of South Africa is standing by him strong, and other African leaders are turning a blind eye, with the exception of Zambian President, Mwanawasa (yeah, ask me to pronounce that for ya!), and people are starving and being tortured. Will we ever get it right, as human beings?
