"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


ain't got nothin' at all

There's a great piece on child soldiers in the Congo in today's Statesman. I read the article and looked at the pictures before realizing that it was written by my friend Eddie Sanders at the L.A. Times. Wally (of the Rose Bowl tickets)'s pictures are great, too. They were working on the story in Goma in August. We talked about this at dinner at the Nyira one night. All the kids they'd met that day said they were eighteen, even though some were clearly closer to eleven. It's a good analysis of a sad issue, and it's kindof cool to have gotten to talk this over with them in the field.
