Rat's Nest
Bloggage, rants, and occasional notes of despair

O dinner where art thou?

Aaron of Uppity-Negro.com (yes, that's really what his website is called) takes exception to Bill Quick's assertion that the current famine in Zimbabwe is essentially the fault of Mugabe's policy of confiscating farmland and it over to thugs inadequately-trained people.

Like Mr. Quick, I prefer to eschew ideologically-motivated lies and rely on relatively unbiased sources of data, such as the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization.

Zimbabwean Diet -- Calories

Zimbabwean Diet -- Protein

Zimabwean Diet -- Fat

(UPDATE:  Aaron questioned me as to why I had removed this article.  It was because the damned graphs weren't displaying; as I was going out in an (ultimately futile) attempt to remind certain people that I'm alive and in need of a contract, I just pulled it rather than play further with it.  It appears that some bizarre interaction between CityDesk and other software was preventing the graphs from being imported properly.  Go figure.)
