If you own a TV you're probably aware that the President of Zimbabwe (a former revolutionary hero named Mugabe) is a monster.
The other day I got an e-mail from a friend of a friend doing ministry in Zimbabwe.
Mugabe's thugs (he calls them police but there's no rule of law) were terrorizing them because the administration saw their ministry as a threat to his ability to win last weeks sham election.
This is at least a moral values issue.
Now in real life there's not much to be done about Mugabe without the support of the African nations, most notably the cowardly administration of South Africa. That said if you pray, pray. If you write letters, write letters. If you write a blog, do that too. Things are bad there, and they're probably going to get worse. Pressure, even informal pressure from American consumers, will help the African street to man up and let Zimbabwe heal.
