Super-Self-Indulgence Alert: On Zimbabwe at the South Africa Blog

Things have been busy at the South Africa Blog where the biggest issue has been Simba Makoni's quest to unseat Robert Mugabe. What once appeared to be a quixotic lark suddenly seems like, well, a quixotic lark that might just have a chance were it not for the fact that Mugabe will assuredly find a way either to crush Makoni or simply to steal the election if it is not going his way. At the risk of being accused of egoism run amok, the South Africa Blog has probably had as consistent coverage of the events in Zimbabwe as any source in the United States. I hope you will check it out, as this story is vitally important for the health of Zimbabwe, even if we likely know how this story ends.
