This Day in History -- A Monster is Born

On this day, 82 years ago, Mad Bobby Mugabe, the monster who has afflicted Zimbabwe for decades, was born. The Times reports the latest on the situation there...,

Last week Kembo Mohadi, the Home Affairs Minister, made the first official admission that the country was seriously short of food. “There is no grain whatsoever. Our people are actually starving,” he said on state radio.

"support and light"..., right!
