Mugabe's U-turn?

The Telegraph reports that Mad Bobby Mugabe is finally realizing that his racist, Marxist economic policies aren't working.

President Robert Mugabe has begun to reverse his "insane" land grab and offer some white farmers the chance to lease back their holdings in Zimbabwe.

With the fastest shrinking economy in the world, Mr Mugabe has had to backtrack on six years of chaos and his own determination to rid the country of all white farmers.

In an orgy of violence, Mr Mugabe seized the land, homes, equipment and infrastructure of about 4,000 white commercial farmers who produced almost half of Zimbabwe's foreign currency.

The U-turn is expected to be announced within days.

Read about it here.

It's not much, and it is far, far too late, but it is the first small hint that a bit of sanity might be dawning on Mugabe's viciously addled consciousness.
