- Here's A Little Good News
Reprehensible nutjob Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe is in critical condition in a Singapore hospital.
Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, 88, is fighting for his life in a Singapore hospital after handing over power to Defence Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Ordinarily this would be a reason to cheer. It's tough, even in Africa, to find someone who has done as much to replace civilization and wealth with misery and despair as Robert Mugabe. But the harsh truth of Africa is, it probably won't mean much to the people on the ground. It will just mean another military coup, and another round of political purges, and more misery for the people who haven't already fled.
To quote that Leonardo DiCaprio movie, TIA.
