this & that

  • We throw away a lot of food while people starve. (HT: Cool People Care)
  • This is an amazing chronicle of a life. Here's the story.
  • Among those embassies neglecting their fancy D.C. properties: the Democratic Republic of Congo. I can confirm this, having stood outside the gates to read a sign directing me to the actual embassy, which is in an office building on M Street. How hilarious that the guys next door have managed to purloin parking in Dupont out of the situation.
  • Speaking of my favorite basket case country, the idea that MONUC will be able to leave anytime in the next 20 years is a pipe dream. But whatever.
