Uganda’s “Kill the Gays” Bill

The appalling David Bahati is still pushing on with his abhorrent piece of anti-gay legislation in the Ugandan parliament. It would seem that it is now reaching a crucial point. This travesty has been going on since 2009. Perhaps it’s always useful to have scapegoats ready in order to deflect the population from the real problems at hand.

Update 14 May 2011: the current Ugandan parliament ran out of time to debate the bill, so it’s been shelved. Unfortunately, that probably means that Baharti will try and re-introduce it in the next parliament.

    Hi Geoff,

    Lovely blog you got here. I stumbled upon your blog while i was browsing WLW album features on tecnogran’s blog (super awesome eh!).

    Can i ask, do you still use WLW? and if so, where are your pictures being saved? on the Sky Drive automatically when you “insert picture”? I just started on wordpress and not sure where the best way to store the pictures cos i find the wordpress media library quite messy!

    Thanks a lot and i hope you will reply!

      Hi lilyandtom,

      Yes, I use WLW for my blog. All the images in my blog will be saved in WordPress’ Media Library. They get saved when I publish an entry. When we had Windows Live Spaces, then publishing to Spaces would automatically save the images to Sky Drive, but now that we’re using WordPress, the publishing process uses the WordPress Media Library instead. Same process, different destination…

      I rarely look at the Media Library directly – and then only to check that I’ve still got plenty of room.
