As you have noticed (and we agree), this website is pretty awesome. Why you would choose to not be a member or logged in is baffling to both of us. The process is simple and costs you nothing, unless you really feel the urge to pay then we will not deny you that request. Back on point, once you become a member you will wonder why you put up with this notice all this time and ask yourself, "What was I thinking?" Being a tWebber is too awesome to pass up.
So stop playing ninja trying to act all stealth and lurking about (we see you), do you really want to be seen as a "lurker". Its like you are peeking in people's windows while they undress. How naughty of you. Does your mom know what you are doing right now? She agrees you should just register or login already. Good job.

Teams from the Ministry of Health and Social Services are still investigating what is suspected to be paralysis or weakness of the lower limbs, which has so far claimed three lives.
As far as New Era could establish yesterday, 28 people from Havana, Goreangab and surrounding informal settlements were hospitalised at the Katutura Hospital with the disease, whose symptoms are similar to those of poliomyelitis.
Acting Permanent Secretary Maggie Nghatanga told New Era yesterday the situation is critical but stable in the sense that no admissions were made yesterday.
Nghatanga could not say what was going on as the sickness is still under investigation by the laboratories and other professionals on the ground.
It is also believed that tests were carried out to determine whether contamination of water could have led to the sickness.
According to a hospital insider, the disease, whose symptoms are weakness of the lower limbs is contagious and the patients were kept in isolation in Ward 5A. "They feel weak and get paralysed afterwards," she said.
A local daily yesterday quoted the Superintendent of the Katutura Hospital as saying that the first patient was admitted on May 13 with paralysis and shortness of breath.

I said "not in no respect tyranny", not full-blown tyranny, and I was careful to make that distinction. My point was that there are elements and actions of our government which resemble tyranny, not...
I confess…I’m an intellectual. I like to discuss Christian theology. I appreciate that the Christianity we live today was shaped by first the writers of the New Testament and lots of faithful people...
