The right stuff

So the decision has been made: as reported here and elsewhere, Minister Ndebele has decided to return the car and other gifts that were offered to him. His reasoning includes that he has only his good name at the end of the day, and cannot afford to have his reputation sullied in any way. Quite right, sir, and well done. It’s heartening to see this kind of precedent being set early on. Only a little disappointing that PZ could not have given the same kind of firm direction, too.
