"The pen is mightier than the sword"

...wrote Edward Bulwer-Lytton.

Today President Mugabe was explaining in the Zimbabwe "Herald" why he wouldn't be giving up power no matter what the ballot results show, "We shed a lot of blood for this country. We are not going to give up our country for a mere 'X' on a ballot.  How can a ball point pen fight with a gun?"

So I guess the jury's still out on where this leaves the machete...
