7 Votes

My totally loud, know-it-all roommate goes to bed at 6 p.m. It is 2001. My roomie has just stood for election as Hall President at Legon Hall in the University of Ghana. I know he is infamous, derided, mocked. He thinks he is popular, famous, loved. He wins! Not the elections. He wins 7 votes out of over 5000. Take away 4 (the number of his roommates). Take away 1 (his own vote). He just had to sleep early, right?

    @ Lyrix: Empty barrels make the most noise. The emptiness is not just about sense, it is about courage too.

    @ Kwame Mensa-Bonsu: You say the smartest things.

    @ Nana Fredua-Agyeman: I do remember the venerable General. His wife and kids apparently voted against him.
