The prodigal son

I'm returning to SA tomorrow. For good. I can't wait. As my entire life is in transit, ther won't be any posts for a good few days.

My only post on the elections

I heard an interesting comment from a disillusioned Democrat yesterday. She reckoned that 11 of the states added the question of same-sex marriages to the ballot in order to lure the far-right Christians to the polls - "a bit of red meat for the seething Evangelical masses to feed off" is how I think she put it. An interesting tactic, if it's true, and not one that I've heard any comment on.

Who's not paying attention?

This is an interesting little story. On the surface, it seems like the ANC-dominated National Council of Provinces (NCOP) has taken a firm stand against Mbeki on his neglect of rape in South Afirca. At a second glance it seems like the DA member just caught all the ANC delegates napping.
