A short Friday afternoon ramble

Does anybody else think it would be somewhat unfortunate if the Pope were to die on April Fools' Day? I don't mean that I'll particularly miss the old be-dressed fellow — though he seems like a nice enough crazy religious old man — just that it would be an unfortunate day for him to finally give up his hold on life. Or is it just me? Oh, just me then.

In other news that comes as (an entirely expected) kick in the teeth for democracy, decency and the human condition; Robert Mugabe's Zanu-PF party has swept to victory in the Zimbabwean elections. Depending on who you ask the election was either a disgusting, massive fraud or the most free and fair election in the world. I think I know which way I'm betting.

I was going to rant about automatic toilets not noticing me and the brilliance of the Amateur Transplants, but that will have to wait until I have more energy and inspiration.
