#Rhodesia was never a typical colony and was never a burden on the British tax payer (that occurred after it became Zimbabwe).
Even President Julius Nyerere of Tanzania, who had hardly shone in leading his own country told Mugabe in 1980:
“You have inherited the jewel of Africa.” Image
Where others saw only stone-age war, plunder and slavery; these men saw an opportunity for themselves and for a new nation in the true Spirit of the Magna Carta and Westminster system. What they achieved within the lifetime of one ethnic-European man is incredible! Image
They entered a land fraught with danger& imminent death. Wild animals, debilitating disease, slavers, tribal war lords, without basic infrastructure.
There were no roads, no reliable agriculture, nothing but their wits, skill &determination to create a nation that was self-funded Image

đź“śL'histoire de #Compostelle
La légende rapporte qu'après la Pentecôte, Saint Jacques alla évangéliser l'Espagne. Il débarqua en Andalousie sur la côte méditerranéenne et de là il se rendit en Galice, région située à l'extrémité nord-ouest de la péninsule Ibérique. Saint-Jacques par Rembrandt - 1661
Après quelques années, il revint à Jérusalem où il fut décapité. Ses disciples mirent son corps dans une barque, poussée par le vent et les eaux, elle vint s'échouer en Galice. Le corps de l'apôtre fut enterré dans les terres, en un lieu qui deviendra Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle - ©lepere
Il faut remonter au 25 juillet 813, date à laquelle l’ermite Pélage, guidé par une étoile mystérieuse, aurait découvert la sépulture de l’apôtre, dans un ancien cimetière. Ainsi, les pèlerins ne tardèrent pas à venir honorer ces reliques. Pélage, représenté dans un ouvrage calviniste du XVIIe si

We still have not heard from #SCOTUS about the pending requests in Alabama’s attempt to execute Willie Smith. The state is asking #SCOTUS to lift two stays granted by lower courts, so the execution will not proceed unless the justices grant those requests.
Here are the two relevant dockets:
* spiritual advisor issue:…
* method of execution and ADA case:…
As Alabama acknowledges in its filing, it will not be able to proceed with Smith's execution at this time if SCOTUS doesn't act in the next 83 minutes because "Alabama’s execution warrant is only valid for twenty-four hours, until 11:59 p.m. CST tonight."

Lots doing on today's orders list. The Supreme Court will decide whether Philadelphia can exclude Catholic Social Services from its foster-care system because CSS refuses to place children with gay couples. #SCOTUS…
No action this morning on Obamacare appeals or in the case involving a Christian florist who declined to make arrangements for a same-sex wedding. #SCOTUS
#SCOUTS grants, vacates, and remands (on jurisdictional grounds) in Feliciano, in which the Supreme Court of Puerto Rico consolidated numerous Catholic institutions in PR into a single entity in a pension suit.

1/ Thread on Murphy v. Collier (Texas Buddhist execution case). The Court granted the stay on March 28. #SCOTUS
2/ At the time, J. Kavanaugh wrote a two-page concurrence to explain why he voted to stay the execution. J. Thomas and Gorsuch would have denied the stay, but did not explain their reasons.
3/ Monday yielded more developments in this month-old case. It is strange for a Justice to write a dissent to explain their decision a month earlier. It is even stranger for a Justice to respond to these late additions. Yet, this is precisely what happened.
