Look! Up In That Tree

Sometimes one takes a week away from work and goes off in an attempt to find a place where Liberty and Freedom still exist. Then, while in Zambia an unfortunate incident occurs.


LUSAKA - A monkey urinated on Zambian President Rupiah Banda as he spoke to journalists at a news conference on Wednesday.
Banda softly shouted: "You (dart throwing monkey) have urinated on my jacket," and paused as he looked up to see the animal playing in a tree just above his chair.
"Perhaps these are blessings."

As it turns out, yesterday was full of just such activity. For my part in it, I apologize to President Banda. I was trying to hit the journalists.
