Zimbabwe election, Mugabe Wins, Mugabe loses.Delete as appropriate

After yesterday’s frivolities, I’ll try to be a bit more serious today. Zimbabwe, why is it that a country that is almost under a dictatorship and where casting your vote is a life threatening event, they seem to have no problem engaging with the electorate. But here in the “free world” people just can’t be encouraged to vote. Perhaps the government should threaten to rig the vote or whip people trying to vote, in an effort to encourage more voters. Which ever person wins it cannot be any more damaging than the last leadership result in the US.

From time to time I highlight a blog that I think is worth reading, today I would highly recommend postsecret, PostSecret is an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a homemade postcard. Give a click it changes every Sunday and at lest one will touch you.
