If I were not African, I would, after watching the coverage, think of Africa as a place of magnificent wild animals in which black Africans exist as tour guides, or as a place of desperately poor people who kill or are killed by one another for little or no reason.

I'd like to write more, but I think the author captures it.

I have alot to say these days but I think I'll just sit with my thoughts for a while. I know, it's a surprise.

is this real or is it memorex?
if its communication.gov, you are brilliant... almost, that is.
i was in kabul and that urban environment just isn't part of your prose.
don't be a tourist. what is going on? personal experience, not meanderings.

PP: Who are you and what are you talking about? What is memorex? Don't read if you don't like my meanderings. I won't be changing the style anytime soon.

Everyone: Glad y'all liked the article, esp. 'salted peanuts'
