Political Cartoonist par Excellence

In our Sunday Newspaper

This was the cartoon in our Sunday newspaper last week-end.  How marvellous to have such a consistently fertile imagination and the talent to put it into pictures week after week.  The funeral of our great hero has spawned a number of interesting repercussions! I took a photo of the pic in the newspaper - 'mentioning no names'.  Ironically, all of our hero's dreams have thrown into sharp contrast the short-comings of our current President and Government. It will be interesting to see what the future holds. History has discovered that when a Liberation Movement is voted in to replace the previous regime (in Africa), it takes about 30 years to get them out again. So our current lot have theoretically another ten. Still one is tempted to feel that this week's events might shorten that forecast a bit.
