Letter From The President: Courage to lynch?

Wed, 13 Apr 2005 Source: J. A. Fukuor/Daily Dispatch

Countrymen and women, loyalists and opponents, ours is a nation in need of heroes.
There are so many people in this country looking for heroes in the wrong places. Can you believe that some people think that I am a hero ? merely because I have stopped the identification haircuts at the Castle. Others think I am a hero because I can be ?brutally frank? with Jerry Boom. To many others, I am a hero because I have elevated nepotism and ?double-speak? to unprecedented levels.
Some people also think that Jerry Boom is also a hero because he managed to stage two successful coup d?etats. He is also considered to be a hero because his ?boom speeches? are often interpreted as courageous sermons.
