Actually I'm feeling really well today. I had a relaxing Sunday - went out with a colleague to see his daughter's play (she's 4) .. not something I'd normally do but I was feeling quite chilled out so just went with the flow. The play was titled The Grasshopper and the Ants (my friend's daughter was a cute little ant all dressed in black with adorable red antennae). I guess the play inspired me to get my act together and do some work!
I had quite a productive morning - completed one article that will be published next weekend in the UK.. that ought to pay the rent for a couple of weeks lol :) The article is basically a foreigner's commentary on South African politics and the run up to the election next year. Pratish - you're going to have to give me license to use that Julius Malema background cartoon of yours at some point - it's great!
Basically I do agree with the analysis on the cartoon blog - Malema has been at the firing end of the media guns for a while now. While he has been victimised to a certain extent it would serve people well to remember that a lot of his rhetoric is not targeted at the media - his real audience - the poor, young and uneducated - relate well to him and probably get all worked up and energised by his speeches. It's funny to see how the ANC is trying to reign him in now - articles in just about every paper about this today!
The Editors' blog is moving - As of Thursday, the Editors' blog will move to a different address on the BBC News website. While this page will no longer be updated, it will stay here ...
