    Tortured Ugandan Political Prisoner Wishes Uganda Had Oil

    KAMPALA, UGANDA. A day after having his hands amputated by soldiers backing President Yoweri Museveni's brutal regime, Ugandan political prisoner Otobo Ankole expressed regret Monday over Uganda's lack of oil reserves. "I dream of the U.S. one day fighting for the liberation of the oppressed Ugandan people," said Ankole as he nursed his bloody stumps. "But, alas, our number-one natural resource is sugar cane." Ankole, whose wife, parents, and five children were among the 4,000 slaughtered in Uganda's ethnic killings of 2002, then bowed his head and said a prayer for petroleum.


    Single instances make for bad precedents. We gonna free the world now?

    There are several indisputably guilty as hell child-killing perverts in prison that I'd happily execute, but I am against a death penalty. It is indefensible in principle and, especially, in practice. No exceptions.
