Tuesday’s Piece (original)

A sense of humour is slowly returning to the Rhodesian scene so may I be permitted to relate the following true story:

Driving one afternoon last year along Salisbury’s Sir James McDonald Avenue I found myself uncontrollably and most inappropriately (perhaps excusably?) laughing, alone and aloud, for I was behind a car with a sticker – “You are behind me, I am behind Ian Smith, let us go forward together” – In front of the car in front of was a loaded hearse on its way to the Pioneer Cemetery!

John Lentell

November 14th, 1968
