    3. I understand the Israeli craft will carry a bagel just in case the moon really is made of (cream) cheese.
    4. A south African born Police officer I worked with, said that the land the white settlers moved onto was completely deserted and the various tribes only moved there because of the opportunity of work and/or a better life, away from tribal rivalries and towards a system of civil law and justice. He added that, just like the Asiatic Soviet troops in Berlin who took taps home with them as water came out when you turned the handle, the Africans who take over the lands from the white farmers, will believe they can live a life of luxury, not realising that the land will need constant work on it. The government of Zimbabwe, once called Africa’s breadbasket, is now pleading for those exiled farmers to return as they realise they have made a complete f*ck-up of their socialist plans.
    As horrid as the thought of living under a Putin government seems, it may be better than what they have left behind.
