So, here's your Sunday Open Comments Thread.
Use this wisely, folks. The usual rules apply: play nice.
As always, thank you All for coming here.
p.s. In the "unplanned open thread" this last Wednesday, I pointed to the election in Cote d'Ivoire as being worthy of discussion. See? Told you so. Not only are there two claimants to the Presidency now, but ol' Thabo Mbeki is the AU negotiator trying to resolve this. Given his lack of success in several other circumstances, I predict near-certain doom awaits. Love to be wrong, though.
