Same Old, Same Old

Zimbabwe is still run by lunatics.

Zimbabwe's economy was approaching paralysis yesterday as petrol stations across the country ran dry. President Robert Mugabe's regime has ordered all retailers to cut fuel prices by 60 per cent, a move that forces them to sell petrol at a loss. As a result, filling stations across the country have stopped selling altogether...

Blah blah. Surprised anymore? Not really. The only thing surprising is that anyone still lives there. I guess the overland trek to the much-more prosperous Botswana is guarded.
