Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Nelson Mandela is, apparently, more concerned about cricket being played in Zimbabwe than he is about the millions that Mugabe is threatening to starve to death.

"They must respect what the international cricket committee says," Mandela told reporters outside his home. "We must show discipline. If we refuse to follow what the international body says, we introduce chaos in cricket.

"They have examined the matter they have conducted research and so on. They know what is dangerous for cricketers. If they say cricketers must go to Zimbabwe, must go to Kenya, that is what they must do."
