Watch Zimbabwe

Once a prosperous breadbasket, Zimbabwe has been driven into the ground by the twenty-eight (and counting) year rule of President Robert Mugabe. The man, let's be frank about this, ruined the nation. He took away the farms from the (mostly white) people who owned them, made them government property, and promptly drove them into the ground through lack of farming knowledge. Now, he is close to being unseated by his opponent, Morgan Tsvangari (sp?). Please, pray for a peaceful transfer of power in Zimbabwe. BTW, I'm trying a new FireFox add-on called ScribeFire which let's me post to my blog from any window. Cool, huh? We'll just see how well it works.
