So while I am blogging that SA is not the most dangerous place on planet earth yesterday, tabloids and broadsheets both here and abroad are having field day with the murder of Eugene Terreblanche.

People forget that this land has survived all manner of hardships - political and natural. I will not enter into debate on the who, what, where, when and hows of the incident. I will say, my experience, is that most South Africans are warm, a bit conservative and not inclined to the behaviour that is being portrayed in the news.
Most of us are out doing our usual things and tut-tutting at the headlines. We have a habit here, of chatting to strangers as if we know them. Post Office and supermarket queues around the land will have us sharing our opinions on this one.
