When your car gets jacked or a house caves in – who you gonna call? GHOS....ah wait it’s not 1984! You’d think that 27 years later we’d have better ways to communicate emergencies – but wait – we do!

Biologist E.O. Wilson once pondered whether many of our fellow living things were doomed once evolution gave rise to an intelligent, technological creature that also happened to be a rapacious carnivore, fiercely territorial and prone to short-term thinking.”

Enter the human race...

Hait(i) Crimes

Ok so before anyone from the high horse brigade starts throwing rocks or 2 week old fruit at me, no I didn’t know a damn thing bout Haiti until about a week ago. Sure I’ve heard the references on television and blew away my share of Haitian gang members in various incarnations of Grand Theft Auto. So I sort of got that this wasn’t a thriving example of first world opulence. I’m from Africa damn it, I can’t be bothered to check up on every ailing country on the planet, we have problems of our own, you know. Ok so before I continue I’ll make another plea to the high horsers, I am in favour of aid to Haiti, who wouldn’t be? Even as we run to aid Haiti though I wonder about the hypocrisy of it all.
