The Susan Boyle Phenomenon et al

Will Ms Susan Boyle rake in enough dough to upgrade from council housing?
Did Janis Joplin get her Mercedes Benz from on high before heading there?
Will the world be speaking Putonghua, Yue or Wu 20 years from now?
Will the United States of Africa ever be more than a pipe dream?

The greatness in these random questions is that they need not be answered at all. Just thinking about them is good.

What an inspirational comment, NY!
So profound and yet so simple.
You are, it has to be said, damn good. Thanks man!

Good point by NY.
I love how all you philosophical people start sharing your unanswered questions! Maybe doing the same will lift some pressure off my chest. I wish the dream of the United States of Africa would come true.

Good questions... I think the answer to all of them may well be yes. But wouldn't it be cool if we were all speaking an African language? Let's aim higher :)

Good to see you visited, Toks!
Yes indeed. If Africa could assemble around one African language, we will be on our way to unity and global relevance. There is a need for something grand and inspirational to bring us all to the table though. No? For the time being we are so much pre-occupied with fighting for survival.
