What’s up Friday? I mean it used to be TGIF (Thank God It is Friday). But the past Friday was nothing then a spectacle.
Drum roll please…
• Financier Bernard Madoff, 70, a former Nasdaq stock market chairman who allegedly plundered $50 billion from investors.
• President Robert Mugabe who declared on Friday that “Zimbabwe is mine,” and “I will never, never sell my country. I will never, never, never surrender,” He also stated that only Zimbabweans can remove him from power and no African nation is brave enough to wrest it from him.
• Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich who defiantly proclaimed his innocence Friday and said that he will not let a “political lynch mob” force him to resign.
“I will fight. I will fight. I will fight until I take my last breath. And I’m not going to quit a job that people hired me to do because of false accusations and a political lynch mob.” in his first official statement since being arrested last week on federal corruption charges.
