Looking Back At 2008


The Last day of 2008 is upon us and looking back, as with every year that goes by, there’s good and bad to ponder. Global Economic Crunch… BAD, beating the Aussies at cricket in their own back Yard …..PRICELESS.

We can continue along those lines if you like, Liverpool ending the year at the top of the premiership ….GOOD, Captain Steven Gerrard spending the night behind bars for over celebrating ….NOT SO GOOD.

The Boks having come last in the Tri – Nations ….BAD, returning from their European tour unbeaten ……GOOD.

It was another year of brilliant and hard hitting cartoons from Zapiro….GOOD, Zapiro being sued by Jacob Zuma and Co …..BAD

Robert Mugabe gets beaten at the polls….EXELLENT. Robert Mugabe just wont go ….*"!# BAD

And so it goes….

By the By: the above pic of Zapirio was taken at the launch of his cartoon collection Take Two Veg and Call Me in the Morning. :) It was found on www.flickr.com and was originally Uploaded by BOOKphotoSA. Although the launch took place way back in 2007, I couldn’t resist slotting it in. :)
