The current (11/29-12/5) issue of THE ECONOMIST carries a moving tribute to
the Rev. Canaan Banana, sometime President of Zimbabwe, who died November
10. Sample: “For much of his time in office, President Banana’s job was to
look dignified at posh events, such as Prince Charles’s wedding to Lady
Diana Spencer. His light workload left him with plenty of time for his
hobby, which was raping his male attendants.” Requiescat in pace.
