A friend called me this evening and asked me excitedly if I had heard "the news."
- "What news?", I asked. At work, our Internet connection has been patchy and we don't have radios.
- "Yar'Adua has been declared president-elect!"
I almost collapsed laughing on the phone.
- "That's it?" I exclaimed, barely choking down my laughter. "Is that one news? No, what would have been news is if someone else had won."
