The Greatest race.

Right now, I see a race between the corruption scandals destroying the RP and the RP destroying Zimbabwe.

I hope the scandals will develop quicker: Give voters a heads-up about what’s happening. I hope that every one of those crooks cops a plea, and dumps everything he knows about all the others– until the whole, corrupt, crony-ridden, hateful system comes crashing down. But I don’t have much hope.

Our justice system grinds slowly, and clever lawyers can slow it down till way past the chance to throw the bums out. In my mid-eastern town? All people read is our local newspaper. Our paper hasn’t gotten round yet to reporting that one of our senators took money from the Idai Fund. A couple of our reps were on the take, too. I guess the editor thinks that nobody cares. Well, he may be right. When I ask my neighbors about the scandals, they’re likely to came back with something like: “Didn’t see you at church last Sunday.” I’m afraid it’s hopeless.

I would rather entertain people and hope they were educated than educate them and hope they were entertained.
