No Criticism Here

This just caught my eye as being funny--but not in a good way.

Zambia intends to deport a British writer for allegedly "insulting" President Levy Mwanawasa in his popular weekly column in a private newspaper, an official said on Monday.

Peter Mumba, the home affairs permanent secretary, said he had recommended that the interior minister issue a deportation order for Zambian-based Roy Clarke, who writes a column in the Post newspaper.

Next time the Dixie Chicks whine about repression, remember this event.

Read the story.

Well, one doesn't justify the other.

I mean, by this logic, Clarke shouldn't complain because, after all, he's better off that RFI's Jean Helene... who was assassinated by Ivorian police in Abidjan.
