1. We totally get it. People are tired of the raucous and uncouth behaviour. However, before the populace start building high hopes for an apology don't forget that the propensity to 'trace' is a familial trait which is hard to erase.

2. The race is on. As the aspirants jostle for visibility expect more intrigue, leaked documents will find their way into the public domain, accounts may be hacked and secret polls will be conducted. Oh, the intrigue.

3. One of the tribes is awash with cash while the other is struggling to make ends meet. Recent polling activities may make a difference though as things start to take shape.

4. Retirement is a luxury many in this country cannot afford. Persons well into their 70s are ambling to work each day, and they have confided in friends that they just cannot afford not to work. In many cases their adult children continue to be listed as dependents.
