ah… those african dictators…

i have a friend who used to work pretty intensively in a big job in liberia. i was looking for information on his program, and found something funny. so i emailed him and said:

You had crossed my mind as I was preparing a very short presentation on your work in liberia. The either amusing or horrifying part is that the [database redacted], when searching under your name, has you listed, and Charles Taylor as a related person. While he is important in the story of Liberia, I’d hardly call him your relative. :)

to which he replied:

Good research re ex Pres Taylor and I………busted!………just don’t tell anyone that we shared a jacuzzi together in Nigeria one fine spring day. You may also try to see if any links come up between me and Bob Mugabe as we also go back quite a while.

not everyone with big fancy jobs are boring.

  1. Laurent Kabila seemed like such a jolly fellow…

  2. if i were in a hot tub with mugabe, i would have to dunk his head under water for a loooong time

  3. Ditto on Mugabe; I could run a corrupt dictatorship better than he’s doing. Geez.
