Why is the President Bald?

Servaas puts down the paper with a thoughtful frown.

“The world is going crazy. Everybody is apologising for things they did. Can you wrap your mind around that? I can’t. This is so…unusual!

“I think we should  thank Minami Minegishi and Chris Huhne. We all make mistakes. There is not a single living soul on this planet, aged over a year or two, who haven’t lied or tried to manipulate circumstances to suit them. Sure – maybe they did wrong, but it takes a lot of courage to knuckle down and take the rap. That’s what I call integrity. If people want to punish them, that’s the way it is. But I can only tip my hat and respect their efforts to come clean.”

“I agree, Gertruida. It does command respect.” Kleinpiet flashes her a wry smile. “Now, how are we going to get that same honesty here?”

“Well,” Boggel gets on the crate to serve another road, “at least our President is honest. He’s shaved his head a long time ago. That should tell us something.”

      I feel sorry for her – the world is so bigoted and people’s values are skewed. Why make a fuss about an evening with a boyfriend, while Syria is burning? Or Zimbabwe is in ruins? It doesn’t make sense..
