another one on my admiraton list is Morgan Tsvangerai [sp] of Zimbabwe - trying to change the political scene in Zimbabwe and getting nowhere because of all the corruption - he has a lot of supporters but I suppose if there was an uprising by them there would be all out bloodshed in Zimbabwe - he is one very brave man indeed
