Game, set, match!

I thought I had it in my five... I couldn't have been more wrong. 'The girl is bad... The girl is dangerous.'

The is the fabled 'green snake in the grass' that girl. She did things i thought
couldn't EVER happen to me. Well, it's true that time and chance happeneth to them all.

She almost made a hero out of me. Needless to say, she quit while I was yet an antihero. Now that's all I'm going to be, as far as she's concerned. But then, the best is yet to come. Though she may have won the battle, the war is far from over.

Villains: Anti-hero

And now, our much anticipated broadband internet faces further delay! This is somehow expected of the administration in charge. Imagine ours apparently cost three times as much as Rwanda's, for the same length of cable! This is preposterous!

Leaving that for more incensed Ugandans, there's a saying, "There's nothing new under the sun." I believe the great king Solomon said that, but he must have meant that history repeats itself. You either die a hero, or live long enough to become the villain.

Pres. Richard Nixon was a revolutionary, a respected and much admired man, one who turned around the US economy, dealt aggressively with racial segregation in schools, controlled prices, and all kinds of heroics that earned him local and international acclaim. That was until the Watergate scandal. That turned out to be his 'Delilah.'
Such a long 'fall from grace' it was, the people could hardly believe it.
But so strong was the press that they 'pressed' a resignation out of him.
He was later pardoned...

Watch out for our next villain.
