Milestones of democracy

OK, so I went to the vending machine near my office, put in R4 (that's about 60 US cents in case you were wondering), and got out a can of coke. It was #2 in the "milestones of democracy" series, explaining how in April 1994 "long queues were embraced with enthusiasm as South Africans prepared to make their voices heard". Also, they'll donate R1 million (about 150 thousand US dollars) to the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund. Groovy! Must collect the whole set. Kind of reminds me of how McDonalds has now trademarked the phrase "I am Asian" - check it out at Maybe Coke could ask Thabo Mbeki if he'd mind if they trademarked his "I am an African" phrase?
