Robert Mugabe proclaims that "only God" can remove him from office, as Zimbabwe's opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai pulled out of next week's runoff election and sought refuge in the Dutch embassy. Mugabe declared that "The MDC will never be allowed to rule this country - never ever"

All this while the overwhelming majority of Zimbabwe’s population is starving, and while murder, torture, and rape continue. Farms in this erstwhile bread basket of Africa are gutted. Economy is in shambles with 100000% plus inflation. Unemployment is hovering above 80%. Average lifespan is less than 27 years. There is ban on democratic movements and media. Elections are rigged and people are slaughtered like animals.

Where is the United Nations? Why the government of US or UK along with some regional powers isn’t orchestrating a covert assassination? Why isn't he dragged off and shot. The old man must be put out of his miseries.

Speeding Ticket

My manager bought a new car and decided to take me and another colleague for lunch. The lady likes to talk, and she likes to look at you when she talks. She does that even when she is driving a goddamn car.

On our way to lunch we were on the highway and as usual she was preaching about something pontifical cruising at 80 mph on a 55 mph stretch. A cop who was lurking behind the bush with a radar gun took notice. The officer turned on his boom, roared out from behind the bushes in hot pursuit and pulled us over.

She was served one ticket each for speeding, driving with out a license, taking an automobile on road with an expired sticker, and failure to maintain a single lane.

That was the most I have seen. And that was 20 points well deserved.
