An inconvenient truth


Some people have the ability to sum things up in a way you wish you could.  This quote came from Ken Peters, Professor of Economics in the Czech Republic. 
"The danger to South Africa is not Jacob Zuma, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency.  It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of a Zuma presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate, willing to have such a man for their president.  The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Zuma, who is a mere symptom of what ails South Africa.  Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.  The Republic can survive a Jacob Zuma who is, after all, merely a fool.  It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their President."

I want to see the girls strutting this one. Straight-faced.

Thanks Snob

You gotta be shitting me...

This is a bold step towards the absurd, a very bold step.

It may be one of the only new things in cycling in the last 100 years, certainly one of the most scary.

Wounded Karoo......

The nation's topsoil being exported at a rate.....and we can't even blame boo-Zuma.
Sandrivier approach. The Church of the Coffee Mug used to meet behind the trees on the left.  No more Sunday outings for a while.

Sandrivier downstream of crossing. Note the standing waves near the north bank.

Long Live Michael Hastings

Michael Hastings called bullshit when he saw it, and they murdered him for it.
