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



So the Congo's a mess, I'm meeting with The Advisor in 30 minutes, a fellowship application that's due tomorrow is Not Even Close to being done, the CPP is out marching in Washington to support Pakistani lawyers like A's dad, and 3,000 children are dying of preventable causes as they do each and every day. As are 1,000 Congolese.

It's enough to make a girl feel pretty shallow about being so excited about the premiere of Season 4 of Project Runway tonight. Such are the contradictions of life.

Ah, don't feel shallow. At least it's not The View....

Members of the Austin Bar Association are wearing black suits and white shirts today in support of the Pakistani lawyers.
