[OK, maybe should be in the bookie things forum]

Such shit. Moan on (correctly) about how Mugabe supresses literature and how books are expensive in Zim but then moan about how the internet destroys literacy. Surely, does this not reduce the same distribution cost that she was bugged re: Zim as well as reducing government control over what you can read (sa,e).

Give them a prize and they are all experts, I suppose. Give them a zimmer frame and the prize folows them.

You expect an author to grasp a simple economic argument? Weird.

A: "Electricity!"
